Use DBMS_JOB to launch the procedures in parallel and DBMS_ALERT or DBMS_LOCK to synchronize.

plsql does not offer any "concurrent jobs" capability. this has been on open oracle TAR as a "Request for Enhancement" for years. don't expect it any time soon.

You will have to use the features are desribed by Michel et.al. and it is not at all efficient done this way so if you are thinking of doing this because you want to gain speed then unless the jobs your are spawning and running concurrently are long, you can forget it.

Makes me pine for the old DEC days when they offered this capability in their COBOL.

Good luck, Kevin
