Servlets are part of a web environment and a web environment CAN be applied for distributed computing. So don't focus on Servlets, they are just a means to an end. Focus on the web in general. How is the web used in distributed computing solutions? I think you'll find more answers there.
On top of that Servlets are executed using the Java platform. I'm pretty sure you can find some thousands of resources talking about Java and distributed computing.
Except for the assignment is very specifically how Servlets are used in Distributive Computing not how Java is used in it... It is not a general subject the paper's requirements are very specific. I can find a wealth of research on RMI and how it is used in distributive computing, but if I write about that I will fail this paper. The instructions are very VERY specific:
"Write a paper explaining how Java Servlets are used in Distributed Computing. Explain the advantages and disadvantages of using Sevlets. Pick one Distributed Computing System in use today and explain how it's used, what its problems are, why it's important and discuss any future plans on improving it; then explain in-depth how you would develop that same system using a servlet....."

As far as I can tell they are not used in Distributive Computing at all.That's probably because you're using the wrong term. Servlets are the foundation of Web-based distributed computing in Java. If you haven't learnt that yet you have learnt nothing. And you need to start using the term 'distributed'. There is nothing there about 'distributive', and it is not the same thing.
