SOAP is a protocol but it uses HTTP or SMTP as a transport protocol. Then does it mean that SOAP just defines the structure of XML exchanged between client and server?

Actually SOAP messages can be transmitted any number of ways, HTTP just happens to get the most publicity. One obvious starting point to learn more is the W3C site defining the protocol.

Does the J2EE spec provide support for encryption of SOAP messages or is just SSL suffice

Security standardization in web services is pretty much up to organizations other than Sun or the JCP (such as ).OASIS and W3C.
