* In the steps below, $RESIN_HOME refers to the directory in which you
  have installed Resin, and $STRUTS_HOME is the directory in which you
  unpacked the Struts binary distribution.

* Copy the Struts applications (*.war) from $STRUTS_HOME/webapps to
  $RESIN_HOME/doc directory.

* Modify the file "$RESIN_HOME/conf/resin.conf" to define the Struts
  applications, by adding a <web-app> entry for each application inside
  the <host> section. For example, add the following to define the
  documentation app:

    <web-app id='/struts-documentation'

* Restart Resin if it is already running.

* You should now be able to access the Struts applications (assuming
you are
  using Resin's default port number of 8080) at, for example:
