An application server has applications installed on it which users on the network can then run as if they were installed on the workstation they are using.

A database server has programs installed that allow it to provide database services over a network. The data, queries, report generatores, etc are all stored on the server, while the client machines use a front end to access those services.

Yes, and that is frequently done. MS-Windows and *nix can do both. But if the traffic or database requires are high enough you would want to put them on different computers so that they can process the information more efficiently.

Application server contain all application specific components such as Jar, WAR, EAR files which inturn containts web components and bussiness class components.

DB Server will normally a separate server instance. Application server send a db request via JDBC calls to connect to the db and fetch the results / process the request in the databse.

IIS is a web server like Apache. IIS is used in Windows based servers. And in web servers you can use db server and IIS together, perhaps it is most needed in Web Hosting industry.

First, you have to know if they are to interact and if they are to do so, then the applications to exist in the application server should be configured so as to store its content in the database server (oracle in your case) and also the application would fetch back contents from its database server and display on client workstations as requested by the use.
