Shared Objects can be used on any 32-Bit Operating System. shared objects that are created on a client machine connot be used by other applications, only the application that register it.

By createing shared objects, each running in its own thread and calling methods asynchronously, program logic can be run parallel.

inv_notify = create n_cst_notify //Instance variable

n_cst_processing_obj lnv_obj //local variable

SharedObjectregister("n_cst_processing_obj", "SO_parallel_Processing")
IF SharedObjectget("SO_Parallel_Processing", lnv_obj) = success! THEN
    lnv_obj.POST of_Parallel_Process()

    <other processing continues>

Shared object sessions are best used to cache information.
