There really is not much to do with Tomcat integration. One starting point might be to download struts2-blank-2.x.war and deploy it in Tomcat. As far as ant integration, I would need to know a bit more. Are you planning on using ant for deploying or building/deploying? I used ant a bunch in the past, but I have not been using it as much lately.

Now, for the learning Struts, I would suggest reading up on the tutorials available online. Struts2 is a very easy to learn framework (I think), and I have a set of articles that I have written personally that might help. Check here -

The articles are listed with the newest at the top, so you might want to start at the bottom article and work your way up.
