The OpenMRS Settings (formerly Global Properties from 1.8 downwards) are simply variables with assigned string values. These values are editable while OpenMRS is running and no restart is required.

OpenMRS Platform 1.9 was released in 2012, in this release is where the term setting was adopted from Global Properties to Settings. You will realize that the two words are used interchangeably though from platform 1.9 we stick to Settings but in lower versions like OpenMRS 1.8 and below Global Properties is maintained. So global property and setting refer to the same thing and should not cause any confusion.
