I've been using Struts combined with Apache Velocity.

Integration was quite easy.

I feel that JSP very tough(syntax and all,my perception only).

JSP is should be used only for presentation. It is similar to the normal HTML. If you're using scriplets within the JSP, that is perhaps what is causing your perception of it being tough.

If you use JSTL or other taglibs, you'd probably find that it is rather ok to use JSP.
