Likely, not.  Tomcat is a servlet container, which means much of its
functionality is dictated by the Servlet Spec (a fantastic read, by the
way, if you're new to this arena).  web.xml is the Spec-mandated,
portable webapp deployment descriptor.

Tomcat doesn't "realize" you're using Struts; it's that the main Struts
entry point is a servlet, which is a component that Tomcat recognizes.
Review the Struts docs for details.

What are you trying to do?
