||Request gets routed through external NLU (e.g.
||Initialization of user object. User data is retrieved from database.|
||Request and NLU data (intent, input, state) is passed to router. intentMap and inputMap are executed. Handler path is generated.|
||Handler logic is executed. Output object is created and finalized.|
||User gets finalized, DB operations.|
||Platform response JSON gets created from output object.|
||Response gets sent back to platform.|
||Errors get handled if applicable.|
