Please help me.

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 http://www.oracle.com/technology/products/jdev/

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