You can use WebLogic Server for free if it is for development. This product supports JSPs, servlets and EJBs. The download for WebLogic Server 10 is found here (scroll to the bottom of the page).

I don't know of any books, but you will need the documentation. I suggest that you download it from here.

SCJP 1.4, SCWCD 1.3, SCBCD 1.3

My suggestion is for you to start with core weblogic server. Last version is weblogic 10, most production environments using weblogic these days use 8.X or 9.X.

e-docs for weblogic 10

Suggest you take a look at basic admin and samples. If you install workshop you may be able to run weblogic from workshop(built on top of eclipse).

I agree. Here's the link:
