Crystal,

The properties file is just a standard java properties file. Really, it's
only a better option if you have other settings and want to consolidate
them there, along with your session expiration time.

If you can edit the web.xml and restart, and it's permanent, then I'd
recommend you just change the web.xml. If you want all your webapps to have
an expiration of 480, then change it in $CATALINA_HOME/conf, otherwise do
it in each webapps web.xml file as needed.

HTH,
Alec
