A middleware platform for mobile devices to efficiently build distributed applications in a heterogenous mobile environment is essential. Especially for mobile Peer-to-Peer (P2P) applications and applications which have to call back a mobile device, server functionalities for mobile devices are required. In this paper the server building block of our mobile Web Service based middleware is introduced. This server is integrated in the wireless Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) in terms of a HTTP server binding to SOAP. Thus, the mobile application can define services which will be published and used by other devices. This paper presents a lightweight SOAP server architecture for Java2 Micro Edition (J2ME) devices as well as the implementation in Java. Finally, the results of a performance analysis are given in consideration of criteria like latency and memory usage.
