Can anyone suggest me the different pros and cons of the distributed and centralised application server concept in combination with distributed or centralised database or vice versa.
What all possible reasoning before going for a particular kind of architecture.
Or where could i find the learning materials for the same.
Thanks in advance.

Hi Subhash -
There's a ton of literature on the subject available. Start by googling on "distributed systems" and "mainframe systems" for some general links. Then take those same keywords over to Fatbrain or Amazon for a list of books. There is certainly no shortage of books on these topics.

Generally you see distributed app server and centralized database server because you have to keep the transactional data in sync. It's more efficient to distribute both if possible, but it's usually not possible.
Are you considering clustering either the db or the app tier?
