Web services cannot participcate in JTA transactions.
The external system needs to be accessible via JCA to participate in JTA transactions.

Thanks for your response.
To consume external web services, generally we do not opt for JCA.Directly will invoke the link provided by web service providers
by writing a WS client(Session Bean--->WSPOJO--->External web services).
Is it the right way to handle a transactions in the following way by using container managed transaction attribute?
SuD invoke the session bean by using a controller
To the best of my knowledge there is no out of the box support for transaction managment of web services using JTA. The snippet provided by you will not work.
However there are ways to make it work by using WS-AtomicTransaction, WS-Coordination, however it comes at a cost in terms of increased complexity, performance, etc.
Have a look at (http://metro.java.net/guide/Using_Web_Services_Atomic_Transactions.html)
Normally you try to avoid all this complexity by writing compensating logic which works in conjuction with reconcilling logic for reconcilling your app with the external system via day end job or some other mechanisim.
