What are shared objects in Kettle ?

The below pentaho wiki & info center gives the brief of the Shared object in Kettle.

From the Menu bar


1) Click on Edit
2) Click on "Edit the kettle.properties file" to open it's properties.
3) Give value=50 for KETTLE_SHARED_OBJECTS variable
   i.e., KETTLE_SHARED_OBJECTS=50
4) Go back to the console and try saving the job and run it, now you will not get the error.
