I tried implementing tiles2 in my struts2 application.
1)Added 3 jars
---tiles-api.jar:
---tiles-core.jar:
---tiles-jsp.jar:

2)created tile-def.xml:
containing tiles definitions in WEB-INF

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE tiles-definitions PUBLIC
"-//Apache Software Foundation//DTD Tiles Configuration 2.0//EN"
"http://tiles.apache.org/dtds/tiles-config_2_0.dtd">
<tiles-definitions>

<definition name="mainLayout" template="/pages/mainLayout.jsp">
<put-attribute name="css" value="/style.jsp" />
<put-attribute name="pageTitle" value="Add Title here" type="string"/>
<put-attribute name="header" value="/pages/header.jsp" />
<put-attribute name="body" value="/html/blank.html" />
<put-attribute name="footer" value="/pages/footer.jsp" />
</definition>

<definition name="customerInfo" extends="mainLayout">
<put-attribute name="pageTitle" value="Customer Information Page" type="string"/>
<put-attribute name="body" value="/pages/CustomerInfo.jsp" />

</definition>
</tiles-definitions>

3)created
-- header.jsp
-- footer.jsp
-- mainLayout.jsp
--blank.html

4)Modified struts.xml
--added
<result-types>
<result-type name="tiles" class="org.apache.struts2.views.tiles.TilesResult" default="true"/>
</result-types>

----modified action tag as

<action name="CustInfoAction" class="com.bbtnet.fd.custinfo.action.CustomerInfoAction" method="execute">
<result type="tiles" >customerInfo</result>
</action>

5)Modified web.xml
--added

<context-param>
<param-name>
org.apache.tiles.impl.BasicTilesContainer.DEFINITIONS_CONFIG
</param-name>
<param-value>/tiles-def.xml</param-value>
</context-param>

<listener>
<listener-class>org.apache.struts2.tiles.StrutsTilesListener</listener-class>
</listener>

You said you put your tiles-def in WEB-INF, but in your web.xml you're providing a location not in WEB-INF. I'd make sure you're actually loading your tile definitions before going much further.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
