Deployment process of ext plugins into production are quite painful and for me it looks like this doc: http://www.liferay.com/documentation/liferay-portal/6.0/development/-/ai/deploying-in-production do not note users about one important aspect: even app-server supports hot-deployment (so, method 1 is possible to use) - redeployment for ext-plugins is not working.
So, once ext-plugin is deployed - it cannot be redeployed by new version.
From current documentation it is not clear and from Method1 is looks like it is possible to redeploy ext by placing it into autodeploy folder.

The method is on redeploying "Liferay", not the ext plugin. ext plugin can not be redeployed. It's one of the major fault with the current ext plugin and the main reason I'm modifying the original Liferay code instead of using it.
Ext plugin enables easier upgrade of Liferay itself, but as it is now, it's not possible to easily upgrade the ext plugin itself. There is an ant command to delete the ext plugin, but as the article states, it may not be possible to execute an ant command on the production server.

I think the ext plugin is in the right direction, but I don't think all the required features are available yet. I think they're working on it and I'm going to wait it out until they do have something that I can really use.

I think the problem is that it should be clearly stated that Ext Plugin cannot be redeployed, therefore you need to redeploy your production environment from scratch.

I think that was written in another page. The specified page is about "redeploying liferay" and not about "redeploying ext plugin". It may be separating these pages is the source of the problem because most people just lands on a page from search result instead of reading documents from front to back. emoticon
