Yes it's deprecated, but it works (it should, at least). AFAIK Struts
2/Tiles plugin is not maintained much, so using a deprecated feature is not
such a problem.

Another reason that confirms that the plugin is not maintained. Spring
MVC/Tiles integration is better.
So my suggestion is to use the configuration via DEFINITIONS_CONFIG
