Maybe you should have a second look at Magnolia, I disagree that its a 
"presentation layer" only. We have built Magnolia precisely because we 
needed something that lets us implement custom requirements quickly, 
and what you get when you download Magnolia is an example of how things 
can be done, not a "CMS in a (closed) box". It is wide open, and 
although struts is not an option at the moment, it is probably easier 
to add than writing your own CMS - maybe you want to discuss this on 
the magnolia-dev list?

With your requirements I'd evaluate commercial alternatives like Day's 
Communique. I mean, 400 concurrent users? (do you mean authors?) A 
tight deadline? Nothing may go wrong? And your customer wants to build 
a custom system for such requirements? I doubt that this is giving the 
project team quiet nights.

Interested to hear more, I am.
