                     throws java.io.IOException,
                            java.text.ParseException
        Loads a properties file from the file path directly or (if not found) from the first folder containing such a file as of the ConfigLocator configuration passed. Finally (if nothing else succeeds) the properties are loaded by the provided class's class loader which takes care of loading the properties (in case the file path is a relative path, also the absolute path with a prefixed path delimiter "/" is probed). The default implementation uses the hook method loadFrom(InputStream, char...) to finally load and parse the properties.
        Parameters:
        aResourceClass - The class which's class loader is to take care of loading the properties (from inside a JAR).
        aFilePath - The file path from which to load the properties.
        aConfigLocator - The ConfigLocator describes the locations to additional crawl for the desired file.
        aDelimiters - The path delimiters to be used when parsing the source's properties (in case the the serialized format supports / requires the such).
        Returns:
        The Properties as loaded from the resource and applied to this instance.
        Throws:
        java.io.IOException - thrown in case accessing or processing the properties file failed.
        java.text.ParseException - Signals that an error has been reached unexpectedly while parsing the data to be loaded.
