Is it possible to do "deep linking" with extjs?

uh - that's inherent in HTML . Ext JS is a javascript framework that rides on generic javascript, which rides on the DOM and HTML.

What exactly are you looking to do?!

just an fyi - from wikipedia:

Websites which are built on web technologies such as Adobe Flash and AJAX often do not support deep linking. This can result in usability problems for people visiting such websites. For example, visitors to these websites may be unable to save bookmarks to individual pages or states of the site, web browser forward and back buttons may not work as expected, and use of the browser's refresh button may return the user to the initial page.

However, this is not a fundamental limitation of these technologies. Well-known techniques, and libraries such as SWFAddress, now exist that website creators using Flash or AJAX can use to provide deep linking to pages within their sites.[3][4]

Sure it's possible, with Ext.History: http://extjs.com/deploy/dev/docs/?class=Ext.History

Your links look a little bit different (using the # character instead of the ? character) and you have to put some effort into setting up the wiring. There is an example in the examples-dir to get you started.
