JSF is a specification for a set of common user interface components. There is some work underway to write an extension to struts to make it JSF compliant.

JavaServer Faces (JSF) is an application framework for creating Web-based user interfaces.
Being a conceptual combination of Struts and Swing, JSF is a direct competitor to Microsoft's WebForms.

JSF will not make Struts obsolete.

An integration strategy for Struts and JavaServer Faces

Hope this helps,

Craig McClanahan, who designed Struts, is also the implementation lead for JavaServer Faces. He is now working on a JSF version of the Struts taglibs to be released with the next JSF iteration.
For more, see About Struts and JSF.
Craig was also kind enough to provide the foreword to Struts in Action.
HTH, Ted.
