There is no webflow.xml (struts: struts-config.xml) in ZK [1]. ZK is event-driven and works like a simplified Swing.

[1] Of course there some extension like ZK Spring Webflow and ZK Webflow.

The most convient way seems to use a composer for each idspace.
<window .. apply="com.package.Controller"..>
or <window apply="${springResourceName}"..> to retrieve a managed controller (i.e. Spring via SpringVariableResolver)

Instead of writing listeners like swing you could use autobinding/autoforwarding:
<button id="submit" label="Submit"/>

public onClick$submit() {
// handle submit

<button id="submit" label="Submit" forward="onSubmit"/>
public onSubmit() {

Check my side for a simple Struts vs. ZK example and also the MVC Smalltalks.
