can somebody share with me good book/online resource names/links which compares different AJAX frameworks like GWT, YUI, Prototype, JQuery etc. and suggest when to use what. Also how to mix ajax with existing applications written with struts, JSF, and simple servlet jsp.

The JavaRanch Bunkhouse is a great place to start to find books on such subjects. There you will find not only lists of books on various Java and web-related subjects, but expert reviews of these books.

For jQuery and Prototype, of course I'm going to recommend my own books -- click on Books by Bear below in my sig.

As for when to use what, that's governed by too many factors to give a simple answer.

Also how to mix ajax with existing applications written with struts, JSF, and simple servlet jsp.

"Mixing" Ajax with simple JSP/Servlets or Struts is fairly straightforward. You can do whatever you want on the server, and Ajax works like a charm. JSF, with its over-complicated intrusion (in my opinion) into both realms is a bit more of a challenge. I'd target specific questions to the JSF forum.
