Help with general implementation advice

I am brand new to struts.

I am trying to make a web-based control panel that looks like the attached image. I have added red boxes to the picture and text describing what each area should do. I would like the user to stay on the page while taking all actions.

My question is, how should I best implement this?

A) With struts2 and frames
B) With struts2 and tiles
C) One of the above with hibernate
D) Something else entirely

Whatever your advice is, I will research and start working on. I am just looking for a general direction to go from here.

Thank you so much!

Or is this best done in ajax?

Option B would be good if you have proper knowledge of Struts2 Results, actions and how to create screen definitions and layouts for tiles
