Why Struts and JSF integration?

Many of the JSF books in the market dedicate a special chapter for intergating the two frameworks. As a matter of fact I have never used Struts before and directly started reading about JSF.

Do we realy need that integration?

The integration is usually mentioned because Struts is the defacto framework in the industry. A lot of people have spent a lot of time developing their Struts application and by integrating the 2 the only part that really needs reworked is the view.

Not to mention that there is a draft proposal for Struts 2.0 codename Shale that suggests replacing Struts taglibs with JSF.
