[linux-lvm] How to extend the file system online?

After I used LVM2 to create PV, VG, LV on the attached storage
disks, I want to format logical volume as a file system and
possibly extend the file system of LV online. But when I prefer to
"ext3" file system, I find the tool "resize2fs" only can resize
ext3 file system offline.
OS: Linux Fedora Core2(kernel 2.6.7-1.494.2.2smp)
LVM version: 2.00.15(2004-04-19)
Library version: 1.00.14-ioctl(2004-04-06)
Driver version: 4.1.0
vgcreate vg1 /dev/sda /dev/sdb
lvcreate -L 100G -n lv1 vg1
mount /dev/vg1/lv1 /mnt
lvextend -L +50G /dev/vg1/lv1
Then I used "resize2fs" tool to extend file system, but failed.
I know it must be done when "umount" the lv1.
If another tool can finish that running under Linux?
Or if any other file system can be mounted and resized online under
XFS? I don't know.
Anyone can help me? Thanks!
