if you are looking for a free / low budget option, choose Eclipse / MyEclipse.

if you are evaluating without this restriction, intellij-idea would be my choice. specially the jsp / hmtl / css option are so advanced (over Eclipse / MyEclipse).

but if you are just starting struts / java-development (which i assume) - go ahead, take any ide, it's all fine to start with.

Exadel and MyeclipseIDE has good support for jsf , but both of them are commerical and you need to pay for them.
instead you can use Netbeans (it has a basic support for Struts) or Jdeveloper which has an brilliant support for Struts.

you can download Jdeveloper from

you may get developer preview which is the most complete Oracle Jdeveloper upto now.
