Struts was first generation of framework for developing JAva based 
webapps. Extracting request parameters etc. were fine with Struts.

JSF does a bit more, using *components* and different renderers
for presenting that. Also JSF enables you using POJO JavaBeans
for forms and action processing
(in very short)

Struts-Faces is a project to use a "legacy" struts "back end"
and combining it with the new JSF UI technology.

Struts Shale is a *new* framework for leveraging JSF.

If you want more to know, I suggest to come to MyFaces
user lists ;) (based on forrest)
