How do you debug JSP, struts (1.3) applications in Eclipse? Can anyone suggest any good tutorials/books regarding this?

Please be sure to ask IDE questions in the IDE forum. I have moved this post there for you.

You need to add the appropriate server plugin. For example, if you are using a JBoss server, you need to add the JBoss IDE plugin. Look up on the net for the plugin based on which server you are using.

Eclipse comes with a tutorial for debugging JSPs: Help | Help Contents, then Web Tools Platform User Guide | Using the Server Tools | Application Testing and Publishing | Debugging Applications On a Server

Also, do not look for or install JBoss IDE - that is an old product no longer supported. Instead, use JBoss Tools:
