I define "integrating" by limited changes to our Struts Framework(model/view/controller) in
order to use Drupal.

And yes I agree with you in terms on nonsensical. Many member of the Drupal community will
also agree with you.

But I'm stuck trying to get Drupal because my marketing team wants to use it.  I could be
wrong; but from what I read on the Drupal forums there is not a Java API.

The only way I see it possibly working is having PHP making calls to the back-end logic via
some web-service?  And try to re-use the code/business logic  we used for Struts?

Might be way off on this?

Define "integrates"; Alfresco has a pretty flexible API.

Using Drupal and Struts together seems a bit nonsensical to me, but I'm not familiar with
its API (or if it has one). Bear in mind that even without an API you can always just make
requests, or wrap its DB, or...
