Welcome to JavaRanch!
The frameworks you mentioned, like Struts, Hibernate, Spring and JSF, are all very helpful once you are familiar with core Java and the basics of Servlet/JSP technology and understand the problems those frameworks aim to solve. If you are just starting out, however, I can't recommend strongly enough to stay well clear of them. They'll only muddy the waters, which is the last thing you need, because there's already a lot to learn about the basics. Try not to take on too much too soon.
I recommend you invest in a good book and start working through it. Check out the Beginning Java section of our Bunkhouse. I've heard good things about Head First Java, but haven't read it myself.

I think the main thrust of what Jelle said is that you should learn the basics first. And believe me, just getting your head around the foundation classes, the Collections Framework, synchronization and Swing will keep you plenty busy for a while.

Then you might want to look at Servlets and JSP, but not until.
