I have exactly the same problem and don't know how to solve it. 
Everything works just fine in Jigsaw version 1.0alpha3, but in 1.0alpha5
the described problem arises. I have tried with different versions of JDK, 
but without luck. This is obviously a problem that would have been 
discovered by the Jigsaw team, in case it were a bug. It must be me
who is doing something wrong. Nevertheless I sent a "bug report" to 
jigsaw@w3.org last week. After joining the mailing list I feel that
this list might be a better place to drop my report. Here it is:


Dear Jigsaw developers

I have successfully installed and started Jigsaw 1.0alpha5. I go to
/Admin/Directories, get the desired form called "Defined directories" and
see that User and WWW are already defined. I now want to add a new template,
therefore I click on link "Add directory" and correctly get the form called
"Add a new directory." I fill in "Name:" with "TestDir" and "Class:" with
"w3c.jigsaw.resources.DirectoryResource". Finally I push the OK button. 

The following happens: In the browser window a blank page appears, and a   
pop-up window says "Document contains no data". Meanwhile the shell windows
from which Jigsaw was started emits (Jigsaw tracing has been turned on) the
following error messages:
