Property is null by default so no need inject anything.

factory-bean/factory-method doesn't work with null value so it will error.

You are not obligated to define all fields of a class in spring-config. If it is a must to define them in the config, you can utilize the NULL Object pattern. This is a better way of handling null values and also to avoid null pointers at runtime.
