 * FactoryBean that creates a Map with String keys and Resource values from

 * <p>Extends PropertiesFactoryBean to inherit the capability of defining
 * local properties and loading from properties files.
 * <p>Implements the ResourceLoaderAware interface to automatically use
 * the context ResourceLoader if running in an ApplicationContext.
 * Uses DefaultResourceLoader else.
