Struts is the Jakarta Project's web application MVC framework, meaning that it helps developers to structure their application logic into a form the resembles the classic MVC pattern.
It's very widely used (including commercial products such as IBM WebSphere and BEA WebLogic) so you'll have a nice, big user community out there to help you out (and in this forum, of course).
To get started, go to jakarta.apache.org/struts, download the Struts binaries, read the User's Guide, and start looking at the sample web applications provided as part of the distribution. There's also a horde of introductory Struts articles online if you just Google a bit (I can't recommend any specific tutorial, though).

Here are some links that you might find helpful with regard to tutorial information:
http://www.coreservlets.com (see the link for Apache Struts)
http://www.reumann.net (a good one)
http://www.ftponline.com/javapro/2002_09/online/servletsjsp_bkurniawan_09_13_02/
http://www.exadel.com/tutorial/struts/5.2/guess/strutsintro.html
If you do a Google on "struts" + tutorial...you'll get pages of stuff.
If the forthcoming book Head First Serlvets and JSP (aka SCWCD):
Head First Servlets and JSP
by Bryan Basham, Kathy Sierra, Bert Bates ... is a awesome as there other books, I understand there is Struts coverage in this as well. The book is to be released June 04. (according to Amazon).
