a). Whether SOAP is RPC-style? But in the WSDL soap body's messaging style has the option document/literal (or) wrapped document/literal. Because document is messaging based, not RPC based.

b). Can i use SOAP WebServices for point-to-point communication model than distributed computing model ?

SOAP is not necessarily RPC-style. As you say, it can also be Document-style.

b). Can i use SOAP WebServices for point-to-point communication model than distributed computing model ?

Do you mean point-to-point communication without distributing client and server?
If so, I would say it is possible but question the meaning of using SOAP in such a scenario.
Best wishes!
