I am trying to convert a Struts 2 application to a Portlet to finally deploy it in Liferay Portal Server.
Problem is there aren't any useful resources available on the net for this. I have explored the Portal Bridges provided by Apache but I am not quite sure if they work with Liferay. Also they havent mentioned about the changes needed for the Action Classes which use Action Servlet and other Struts classes.
If any of you had success with Bridges then kindly provide the steps you followed.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Did you convert a Struts App to a Portlet? Can you share the steps for the same. I am finding it a little complex to convert my application to a Portlet.
Problem is coming mainly with the Action Class which uses struts Action classes. Although I have specified the jar files.
