This paper presents the development of a simple, well-defined dialogue system, utilising a Generic Dialogue System Platform for prototyping. The application domain of the present system is an automated book club service.

The main focus of the paper is the description of the dialogue design and implementation processes, together with a description of the underlying principles and architecture of the platform.

The dialogue was designed, and represented as a set of dialogue graphs. A close correspondence between the graphs and the DDL (Dialogue Description Language) implementation is demonstrated, being one of the main reasons for the short implementation phase.
