I would not do it in 0.7 to start with. The task will take a while till
it works I guess and we are planing our release. ;) Besides you need to
find a more elegant way since what follows is a hack and I have never
tried it (it should work in theory). ;)

- start to merge your web.xml of the struts app into the forrest one 
- copy all struts jars to forrest-trunk/lib/core/
- copy all WEB-INF/ files from struts app to forrest
- try to request your action and forrest.

WARNING that will produce your own version of forrest and if that works
we need to find a better way. ;) I have never tried it and if you run
into problems please ask specific questions (best with error stack). ;)
