I want to know if there is any future plans to replace struts?

The short answer is that you can use Struts with JSF today, and that Struts will most likely evolve to be a set of features _on top of_ JSF.

See the Struts roadmap for more information.

Also, I would expect JSF to be used by itself for a lot of projects, especially smaller ones. So, I think it'll displace Struts in that sense.

Larger projects, and existing Struts houses, may follow the evolution of Struts itself.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
