If your web.xml file contains something like
<servlet>
    <servlet-name>test</servlet-name>
    <jsp-file>/test.jsp</jsp-file>
    <init-param>
        <param-name>myParam</param-name>
        <param-value>This is my param value.</param-value>
    </init-param>
</servlet>
<servlet-mapping>
    <servlet-name>test</servlet-name>
    <url-pattern>/test.jsp</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>

Open in new window

then in your JSP you can use
<%=config.getInitParameter("myParam")%> or <%=getInitParameter("myParam")%> 
or if you are using latest version of JSP  you can use 
${pageContext.servletConfig.getInitParameter("myParam")}

I don't use Struts but I think the code would be similar. I could google to see any difference. But before I do that you need to tell us what exactly you want to do. Do you want a param-value accessible  to one JSP or Servlet?  This what I posted above here.  Or do want the param-value accessible to your whole web app? For example in your web.xml file you could have the following.
> <context-param>
>  <param-name>myParamName</param-name>
>  <param-value>myParamValue</param-value>
> </context-param>

You could use something like the following in your web.xml file.
<context-param>
<param-name>myParam1</param-name>
<param-value>myParamValue1</param-value>
</context-param>

Open in new window

In your JSP use
${initParam['myParam1']}

The key thing you have said here is "whole web application".

If this is your requirement, then you need a servlet context param not a init param.

If you then want to access the context param, you have a handle on the request object in your struts action.
request.getSession().getServletContext().getInitParameter("myParam");

Your requirements are very loose. So its hard to say whether this is the solution you seek.
