I am confused which one to use in my application.. I did read previous topic related to this, but i didnt find any comparing Struts 2 and JSF.. Struts 2 does add some new features but its not a huge difference compared to previous version.. Please suggest which one to go for..
How about learning curve of JSF..

Choosing which framework is highly depending on your application requirements.
If your application is large and you decided to go with JSF, please consider employing JBoss Seam.

I've been trying to answer the very same question. I haven't spent much hands on time with either, but JSF/Facelets more than Struts 2. I've enjoyed what I've seen of JSF/Facelets so far. I'm going to continue down this path at the moment I think. I'm starting to think frameworks like Struts and Spring are simply too much for my needs. I just need a clean MVC architecture with a nice way to present the View. The combination of JSF and Facelets gives me that.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
