Also, be sure to read up on Tiles for creating your layout.

On the other hand, I am a big fan of Jetspeed as a service aggregator.
Jahia (also a portal product with content management) allows you to
drop-deploy struts applications which is very useful.

IOW, If you are just trying to create a layout and login, I agree with
previous posts that you may be mis-matching frameworks; but, if
you are trying to aggregate a struts service with other content
providers, struts in a portlet is a worthy goal.
