    WW-4594: Configure TilesDefs by annotating Actions

    Adds annotations for each element from `tiles.xml` to annotate actions. Those annotations
are processed by a new class in tiles-plugin which is used by TilesResult.
    With those annotations it is possible to keep `tiles.xml` very short (e.g. just put layout
in there) and configure concrete tiles-definitions just by annotating actions.

You can merge this pull request into a Git repository by running:

> Large applications often consist of hundrets of actions. IMO it is a major benefit of
struts-convention-plugin that it is not necessary to configure all those actions in xml files.
As xml files would become huge and hard to maintain. The same applies to tiles xml files.
Currently it is necessary to configure tiles-definitions for all those actions in xml files
which makes them huge and hard to maintain.
> It would be great if configuration of tiles-definitions could be done by annotating actions,
in a similar way actions can be configured with annotations from convention-plugin.
> This somewhat relates to WW-3937 and WW-4161
