I must admit, no offense, that statements like these (especially bolded one) make me seriously question the relevance of those certificates.

As for your question, it depends on what are you interested to learn further. Core Java 2, Volume 2 covers some advanced techniques (use Google to check the contents), Effective Java is a good book too (also use Google to see what it is about). Some books on threading would also be worth reading, etc.
As for Java EE, you were not very clear on this. Are you just starting to learn it, or you have some experience already?

i have done my certification in Core Java not in advanced java..so that i did not know the details of Advance Java..
i have used Ecllipse for core java..i am from Electronics and communication Engineering and i am new to java..i have been practicing java since past few months,that is the reason i don`t know much about software and all.i don`t think there is something strange in asking about a thing which i did not know..din`t expect such a rude reply..anyways thank you for your reply..

Well, that is because, SCJP/OCPJP is about knowing basics of Java, and being able to understand and write programs in Core Java. It doesn't have anything to do with knowledge of IDEs. Above statement might sound a little harsh, and I hope that you didn't intend to sound it that way (I learnt how to put breakpoints in Eclipse after I became SCJP, till then, I used to debug by inserting print statements at various places )

I believe the confusion here is due to common misconception about Advanced Java - for some people, it means advanced topics in Core Java (e.g. network programming, xml processing etc.), whereas for some people, it is JEE(btw, J2EE is now JEE).

By 'software', do you mean to say IDE (i.e. software which is used to write programs)? Also, please let us know what do you mean by Advanced Java - is it advanced topic in Core Java, or JEE?

There are two really nice IDEs - Eclipse, and NetBeans.
Eclipse has different flavours - one for Core Java, another for JEE etc.
Same goes for NetBeans.

The advantage of NetBeans is - its JEE version comes bundled with an application server (GlassFish) and a web server (Tomcat) - so that you don't have to separately download it. Also, it provides in-IDE integration with those servers (i.e. you can deploy/undeploy your applications directly via IDE).

Eclipse, on the other hand, doesn't come bundled with any server, but you can use any server of your choice (e.g. JBoss). Also, eclipse is less resource hungry, and widely used - chances are high that your current/future development team would be using eclipse.

You can choose any IDE you wish. I've just mentioned a couple of best IDEs I've known.

Also, for advanced topics in Core Java, the books suggested by Kemal(Core Java Vol. II & Effective Java) are really nice.

I hope this helps. Also, I hope that this thread won't turn into NetBeans vs Eclipse showdown

You could check The Java EE 6 Tutorial to get an insight on what topics are covered by Java EE. If you prefer books, I would suggest you choose one of the Beginning... edition by Apress, if you are starting from scratch. You can search their site and read the reviews of the books, so you can properly choose the one that suits you.

There's a useful, little known, site that can be useful for this sort of question - it's called Wikipedia:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Java_Platform,_Enterprise_Edition
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
