Understanding some properties related to Liferay LDAP Import process

Liferay provides an easy way to integrate with LDAP. Using its control panel you can enable LDAP and also add the LDAP server.
There is pretty good documentation around that. Please refer to this wiki link

The two things I wanted to discuss in this post are regarding the usage of the following properties

ldap.import.lock.expiration.time and ldap.import.interval

Both these properties can be specified in the file.

But the confusion I had was what's the difference between these two.

I started looking at the Liferay Portal 6.2 source code and wanted to share my findings.
