We've got a lot of JQuery code that calls back-end web services, and
we're worried about exposing the web services to the outside world -
anyone can "view source" and see exactly how we're calling our web

Are there any suggestions or guidelines regarding protecting one's
source from such disclosure?  Thanks in advance!

Anyway, the webservices will be always exposed to the world, so anyone can 
find it's wsdl to see the exposed functionanilities and call them, willn't?

As JS is a scripting languaje, the client will always have the code, as far as 
I know. Ofuscating it will not solve the problem but mitigate it.
Maybe WS-Security will help you, google for it.
