   * Interface for the implementation of the factory method pattern.
   * The creation of an object of a sub class of BaseClass is deligated
   * to a corresponding sub class of Creator<BaseClass>. So it is possible to
   * manage a CreatorMap, which can be extended at run-time. An example is
   * the OEMSolverMap: If you write your own OEMSolver sub class and a
   * corresponding Creator<OEMSolver<T> >, you can add the creator together
   * with a key string to the OEMSolverMap. Then you can create an OEMSolver
   * depending of a key string read from the init file, which can also be
   * your own new solver.
