While the architectural specification clearly states that you can (http://www.w3.org/TR/2003/WD-ws-arch-20030808/[^]) it's another question alltogether if you want to amble down that rocky road.
Here's a link where they're talking about SOA without SOAP:http://developers.sun.com/mobility/midp/ttips/soanosoap/[^]
The article above is java centric but the principles still a apply to any language capable of serving and/or consuming web services.

Still need help? Leave a comment then.

i have some web services. I need them to be consumed to j2me based mobile devices. But devlepors of j2me are saying, it is quite cumbersome with soap headers. as per their suggestion, i need to remove soap envelope. is it possible is asp.net webservices or WCF? If yes, please provide some example of reference article.

Thank You

You can build a webservice on REST. There is a guide on MSDN on how to build RESTful webservices using WCF of .NET 3.5. It can also be done on .NET 2.0 but you'll have to do all the heavy lifting yourself. See the link I placed in my modified answer.
