Hi Demetris,

kXML is the parser you'd use with JiBX for J2ME support. From what I 
know of kSOAP/kSOAP2 I suspect they'd be considerably lower performance 
than JiBX/WS, but if you're not anticipating a high message volume that 
shouldn't really matter. They'd probably also be more memory-intensive, 
though, and that might be more of an issue. Bottom line is probably that 
you should give them a try and see if they meet your needs.

And yes, JiBX is open source with a BSD-style license.
