Ant doesn't do anything automatically. You need to construct a build 
file which sets out what you want Ant to do to build your war file. It 
will usually involve compiling some code, combining the classes with 
resources into a war and even, potentially, deploying the war somewhere.

I think your best bet would be to ask on the struts user list for an 
example build file showing how struts apps are put together. That should 
get you going. If you don't have any luck there, check back here.
