frames suck: I don't think it's a good idea to separate your page-flow onto
two different layers, one being the javscript/frame-constellation, the other
the struts config-files. What exactly are you trying to achive? If you just
want to reuse your navigation, then go for some kind of template-engine(e.g.
tiles, even simple, maybe parametrized includes will be better than
frames..) - if you have a designer, who insists, that frames are more
"usable" or just look better, have him read this: - it's already so old that i
thought, everybody knows it by now ;)
