Looking for advices

I have a web application that submits an order to webservice 1 and webservice 1 sends the order to webservice 2 for processing. Webservice 2 will send back an order id to the web application. My question is can webservice 2 sends the order id directly to the web application or does it need to go through web service 1 and from then, the web application can get it.
Pls. let me know what you all think.

Thank you so much for all your inputs!

WS 1 calls WS2, so the response from WS2 will go to WS 1.

My next question is how to implement the timeout of webservice2.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
