I want to test the struts code that I write. I have the
following related questions:
1. What are the good tools out there that are easy to use
and open source?
2. Is JUnit the best option for testting struts-apps? How
can one write JUnit tests for struts apps?
Thanks in advance for the help.

Yes, Junit is the best option. Struts Test Case is an extension of Junit for struts. It builds on Mock Objects (builds dummy objects so the server doesn't need to be running) and Cactus (actually run your code on the server.) You can choose which way to use struts test case or use both.
You can also just use pure Junit. I use junit and mock objects to test the individual pieces of my struts action.
