Struts Tiles and URL

Hi all, I have a struts question I was unable to find the answer for.

I am currently using tiles to lay out my site. I have the standard main.layout, then the groups.layout, application.layout, and others all extend main.layout. Is there a way that I can call a tile layout definition from a url without writing a generic action that just forwards to the tile? For instance if the user logs in, they can edit their profile. Their information is minimal, so it's currently being stored in the session. Is it possible to do something similar to the following?

I though this should take me to the profile.layout definition and display the corresponding JSP code, but it just gives me this error.

Or do I have to create an action, that simply takes the name of the forward provided as a parameter and forwards to it?

Attached is my tiles.xml file

I agree. Here's the link:
