It's a bit more involved than just getting portlets to work in  
Tomcat.  You have to install a portal server like Liferay, Jetspeed,  
or JBoss Portal.  Liferay can be downloaded as a bundle that includes  
Tomcat.  Jetspeed portals can be deployed into Tomcat using Maven 1  
(They may have upgraded their scripts to m2 or ant.  There was some  
talk about that but I'm not real sure where it went.)  JBoss Portal  
comes with JBoss, of course.

Liferay also has an ant portlet deployment script that you can use.   
It seems to me that portlet deployment is more of a function of the  
portal server than the framework.  Is this question related to  
deploying a Struts 2.0 app as a portlet?  If so, maybe the best thing  
to provide is a portlet wrapper that can work with an s2 app (similar  
to MyFacesGenericPortlet for MyFaces).  Then let the portal vendors  
provide the deployment script.
