I'm working on a little ol' JSP site using Tomcat as my container. I'm not entirely new to Java and the whole thing, but I was wondering - is JSTL a worthwhile thing to use or look into? Is it "normal" to use JSTL in a web application, or is everyone using Struts or what..?

Absolutely. Embracing JSTL in an effort to create scriptless JSP pages is the best thing you could do for yourself.

JSTL and Struts are not mutually exclusive. And no, not everyone is using Struts.
