I am not sure what you mean by "page-centric", Rick.  But, I don't
think you can use Struts in a "page-centric" way if you mean the way
Shale or JSF operate.  So, I would say that necessarily you have to
use Struts 0% of the time in a "page-centric" manner.  There are
different ways of controlling the flow: event-based page-centric and
request based controller-centric.  There is not really a cross-breed
