 * Allows for making a properties file from a classpath location available
 * as Properties instance in a bean factory. Can be used to populate
 * any bean property of type Properties via a bean reference.
 * <p>Supports loading from a properties file and/or setting local properties
 * on this FactoryBean. The created Properties instance will be merged from
 * loaded and local values. If neither a location nor local properties are set,
 * an exception will be thrown on initialization.
 * <p>Can create a singleton or a new object on each request.
 * Default is a singleton.
