You'll find some Struts-related on the Cocoon wiki [1].

First, it has to be said that Struts and Cocoon can cooperate smoothly, 
Cocoon playing in that case the role of a JSP, but providing way more 
capabilities such as multi-channel/format responses.

Now Cocoon provides features that make looks Struts like a very 
primitive and less-productive thing:
- flowscript, to write controllers without the traditional hassle of 
handling state automata
- Cocoon forms, to build sophisticated forms in a declarative way (no 
need for a form bean)

And of course, combining flowscript and CForms is a _very_ productive
