I am new to struts 2.0. There is a requirement to use ejb 2.0 in struts 2.0.

Please let me know how this can be done.

Struts (both 1 and 2) is a front controller. It has nothing to do with back-end technology like EJB's.
You can use EJB's just like you would with any other program.
We have a Struts-specific forum. I'll move this question there for more input.

Well you can create an Enterprise application (EAR) and build an EJB module in it. Then create a Web module (WAR) based on struts and use EJB in it just as in servlets i.e. using lookups etc...
