Is that for classloaders that do no support getRessource ? We really 
need to know where the file is located in order to reload it efficiently.

We could either keep the current constructors and use the Locator directly :

new PropertiesConfiguration(locator.locate(";

or add one constructor :

new PropertiesConfiguration("", locator);

in this case we'll also need another load method :

config.load("", locator);

I think I prefer starting with the first solution.
