Well, that won't work well unless you've extracted the static files out of the Struts jar.
As the S2 documentation states, the expected filter mapping is "/*". This is because Struts contains static files (the Dojo libraries, in this case), and expects to see *every* request, so it can serve those files.
By mapping to something other than the recommended mapping you're bypassing the default S2 behavior, and must adjust your deployment accordingly.

You are life saver Dave.
This was the quicket solution I found on javaranch.
