Re-usability. Maintainability, and more important no technology lock. So if you use a Struts filter, it only works in a Struts application. What if you get rid of old Struts and move to Spring MVC, you have to re-write all your security. What if you change to the Play Framework from Struts, you have to re-write. Using Struts Filter #1 more than other is it extremely tightly couples you to Struts, and Struts is so old and antiquated already.
