There doesn't need to be, if there's something RESTful--I know nothing
about Drupal, so I'm useless with regards to anything Drupaly.

If the Struts code has an API then PHP could access it like any other web

It really depends on what you're trying to integrate, and what it really
means. It sounds more like you're asking "where do I create the
integration", in the Struts app, or the Drupal app. That I don't know--it
depends on what has the easiest access/integration points, what you're most
familiar with, what the client's needs are, etc.

You're a bit limited in that they're insisting on Drupal--if they want to
do everything through Drupal then your best bet may be to hook in to your
Struts app through that.
