Of course it can, the basic class of the root resource is given by a
property, but no frame will be attached to that resource (unless it
auto-attach a frame like HttpPassDirectory, the property is:
org.w3c.jigsaw.root.class
To be able to index things, you will have to create also the indexers.

org.w3c.jigsaw.http.* are related to server request/replies, you may want
to take a look at org.w3c.www.protocol.http.* for client-side
request/replies (and org.w3c.www.http also)

Basically, you don't have to mess with all that, and you should let the
indexers do the trick (aka create the resources and such), but resources
are easily extensible, and the filters have a very small api.
Hope this helps,
