Java Geertjan Wielenga, a Sun employee, shows how a pair of wizards in the upcoming NetBeans 5.5 can generate a basic web-application from a database, similar to the initial stages of programming a Rails application in Ruby. The story is in two parts, a quick overview and then a second post with sample code and a screenshot of the wizard.

It would simplify the generation of your business logic: basically a bit like Hibernate on steroids. You no longer need to write any code or deployment descriptors to access your database, you just create a normal class and annotate it or, better yet, let NetBeans do all that for you.

Struts is for the presentation logic (i.e. creating web-pages), it makes it somewhat easier to handle validation and error handling in your JSP pages. It's not really related to Java EE 5, though just as Hibernate inspired EJB 3.0, Struts has inspired Sun to develop Java Server Faces.

I don't have much experience with Spring, so I can't comment on that.
