Velocity is a view rendering technology, not a web framework. It works quite
well with struts and there is an excellent introduction to its use in a
struts app in Teds book (struts in action) - well worth a look. (One of the
advantages of struts is that you can use pretty much any (web) view
technology you want with it - not just limited to JSP)

The others I dont know much about, though I could suggest two more to add to
your list while your there: Barracuda (a 'competitor' of struts - with a
highly developed event model and DOM based rendering via XMLC) ,and
Expresso (a framework which inludes struts - and a lot more!)

You may also want to read up on JSF - a spec which though not ready yet will
be the 'next big thing' as far as writing web based applications goes.
Struts already has a JSF integration library thinghy - and it is no
coincidence that the spec lead for JSF is the same guy who gave us struts
(ie: Craig Mc Clanahan - aka "papa struts"). :-)

Struts good
Others bad
...hehe ;->

Really it all depends on what you want to get out of your framework...

Perhaps if you name some frameworks you are comparing it with then people in
the list with experience in both can give some specific strength and
weakness comparisons.
