Property Browser should check numeric values are not too large.

When setting a numeric property value using the Property Browser, there is no warning if the value is too large. 

For example:

esa.netit.fileid.shortname.netit.Excel=2500000000

This value is larger than the maximum Java Integer value (2^31-1 = 2147483647).

The result is that the conversion to an Integer value fails and Clearwell, after catching the exception, uses the default value for the property. 

It would be helpful if a warning appeared in the Property Browser if the property value is too large.
