Why choose E.D.D.I over other technologies

We have asked that question to our users and here are some reasons they mentioned


The Chatbot System - E.D.D.I (Enhanced Dialog Driven Intelligence), has been developed with the focus on the use in enterprise applications as well as the ease of connecting it to other resources (such as databases or other Services).

This platform has been developed for over many years and completely restructured from scratch four times because of logical "dead ends" in the art of building chatbots - thus version 4.

The most outstanding features are:

technical spec:


Build project with maven

Go to the root directory and execute

mvn clean install

Start Servers

  1. Setup a local mongodb (> v3.0)

  2. launch with VM options

    -DEDDI_ENV=[development/production] -Duser.dir=[LOCAL_PATH_TO_EDDI]\apiserver ai.labs.api.ApiServer
  3. Go to Browser --> http://localhost:7070

Note: If running locally inside an IDE you need lombok to be enabled (otherwise you will get compile errors complaining about missing constructors). Either download as plugin (e.g. inside Intellij) or follow instructions here https://projectlombok.org/


For development, use

docker-compose -f docker-compose.yml -f docker-compose.local.yml up

after running mvn package. This builds a local image of EDDI.

For integration testing run



docker-compose -f docker-compose.yml -f docker-compose.local.yml -f docker-compose.testing.yml -p ci up -d
