The PassDirectory has just win a new (first contributed) entry in the
FAQ. However, your problem look like the java extension is not
declared in /Admin/Extensions. 

I just checked that in the sample setting, the "java" extension is not
declared, so this must be your problem. Follow the link to
AddExtension in /Admin/Extensions. If you have the courage to do so,
you can send me a FAQ ("How to I declare a new extension ?" ;-)

The extensible flag only tells the directory resource to index files
through the resource indexer. This resource indexer will only index
files whose extension haas been declared.

No, DirectoryTemplates are used only at 'indexing time'. In fact you
shouldn't create one for a single directory.

Check the resource indexer links when ever available. I remember
writing something about configuring the resource indexer. Yep found
it:

/User/Administration/Overview.html
search for "The extensions database"
