I see some comments already by Stuart and Alan, and concur with Alan about working closely with jigsaw-dev.

Focusing on the public methods is good and then it will come down to naming them appropriately. Given that sub-classes can override the existing public Enumeration returning methods we most likely need to specify the implementation behaviour of the Stream returning methods i.e. specify in an @implSpec that they call the Enumeration returning methods. Later on it may be possible to sub-types to implement more optimally (but the Enumeration “string” is quite long and intertwined with the internal code base)

The protected findResources method may be trickier, i suggest leaving that one alone for now.
