Please refer to attached flow diagram.

As per high level flow diagram, my webservice 1 perform three tasks in one JTA transaction.

1.DML operation on database 1
2.DML operation on database 2
3.In the end, Web service 2 invocation.

If there is a transaction timeout while I'm still in middle of service 2 call, can I commit the two database calls (1 & 2) provided no errors received while executing the queries?

The purpose of transactions is handling multiple operations on different resources as if they were a single atomic unit of work. If you want first two calls to be handled separately from the third call to the webservice, you need to have two different jta transactions.
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
