I did research on amazon I found these books available for WL :
BEA Weblogic(R) Server Bible -- by Joe Zuffoletto
WebLogic Server 6.1 Workbook for Enterprise JavaBeans, 3rd Edition -- by Greg Nyberg;
J2EE Applications and BEA WebLogic Server -- by Michael Girdley
Professional J2EE Programming with BEA WebLogic Server by Paco Gomez
Developing Enterprise Applications with BEA WebLogic Server by Kaminaris Stephanie Fesler (not published)
In addition to EJB by Richard.
Which book in your opinion best goes for certification and good to keep on shelf afterwards.

Arun,
There all great books (well, still waiting for the Kaminaris book to come out in print), so here's my take:
The Paco Gomez book is the one to get if you're using 5.x. The Michael Gridley book gives a better review of J2EE (WebLogic is more the deployment vehicle, rather than the focus of the content). The Greg Nyberg companion book is the most in-depth out there - for EJBs at least. You'll still need other resources to get a complete understanding of WebLogic Server. For version 6.x, Joe Zuffoletto's book is terrific. He goes into WebLogic Admin in much greater detail than the others.
There is a book in the works for WebLogic version 7.x, Sam's WebLogic 7 Unleashed, due on the bookshelves sometime this Fall. (I know, because I'm co-authoring it!) It goes into JCA and WebServices in much greater detail, new tools such as WebLogic Builder, optimization and debugging, and will even have some chapters on certification.
