 My ultimate goal is to give these instructions to a network admin:

1.  Download and install Tomcat
2.  Place war file in <TomcatDir>/webapps
3.  Put the file at __________ and set your database and
email server info.
4.  Start tomcat

Something even cooler would be to provide a simple text editor that
would load your properties file from the WAR and write it back into the
WAR when you saved it. Then you get the best of both worlds.

 Just to mention, there are cases when a JNDI would do the trick and
sometimes (not always) like a system property would do.
