Actually, my experience is that you can do it as a 2 step process. Though
I always do it the way you describe. If you just go and extend a JFS, the 
system will automagically extend the logical volume for you (actually, I 
think you can enable or disable this "feature"). The reason I don't use 
this 2 step method is that I often do not agree with where the new space 
gets put. :-)
