Hi Pauli,
 I am working on the same requirement. I have done some thing like this
  <definition name="preparer" preparer="TestViewPreparer" >
       <put-attribute name="title" value="Tiles tutorial homepage" />
       <put-attribute name="header" value="/layouts/header.jsp" />	 
        <put-attribute name="body" value=="???{nextPage}???" />
        <put-attribute name="footer" value="/layouts/header.jsp" />

In testViewPreparer
 HttpServletRequest serReqObj =
 ValueStack valuStack = ServletActionContext.getValueStack(serReqObj);
 String nextPage = valuStack.findString("nextPage");  
 attributeContext.putAttribute("body",new Attribute(nextPage));

In jsp

<tiles:insertDefinition name="preparer.definition" />

here I am facing two problems

 1. value stack is giving null value.
 2.i hard code the nextPage value some how but after that the exception:-

	at org.apache.jsp.second_jsp._jspService(second_jsp.java:59)
	at org.apache.jasper.runtime.HttpJspBase.service(HttpJspBase.java:70)

 know my question is it the correct way of doing the things.
 can u help me out how u finshed the things.
