Struts Tiles without Struts?

Does anyone know if it is possible to use Struts Tiles outside of Struts? I have tight project deadline that does allow for refactoring my code into struts but, I would like to use some tiles already created.

I tried doing this once, but it pretty much freaked out on me. If you check out the "real" Tiles website (somewhere in France), there's an Advanced documentation PDF, that will give you some help on doing Tiles without Struts. It actually is pretty easy to do I think. But for some reason, I couldn't find any actual examples of doing Tiles without Struts so I hit the wall and bounced (i.e. it didn't go very well).
Oh, also on the "real" Tiles website, there's a distribution of Tiles that isn't coupled to Struts. Hope this helps--good luck!

I agree. Here's the link:
