Yes and no. The API for Tiles 2 is drastically different from Struts Tiles
so the two frameworks require separate XML files, separate configuration
elements, and separate JSP pages. I don't think it will work to "merge" the
two (i.e. you probably can't just include Tiles 2 elements from Struts Tiles
pages, etc.). The JAR files should be compatible but I'm not real sure how
they will behave if co-deployed.

We do have a task on the list to build a Struts-Tiles compatibility layer
that would allow you to reuse Struts-Tiles pages and XML files with Tiles 2,
but I have no idea when such a library will be available. (If you have ideas
we'd gladly accept patches :-)

Wow, I just noticed that the website links to "tiles-user" instead of
"tiles-users".  To subscribe to "users" please send a mail to
users-subscribe@tiles.apache.org. I'll try to get the site fixed.
