ORACLE -- run multiple statements at once ?

I can run the below statements "one-at-a-time",
but get the below ERROR when when trying to
run everything at one time.

declare A1 VARCHAR2(50) := NULL; B1 VARCHAR2(50) := NULL; C1 VARCHAR2(50) := NULL; D1 VARCHAR2(50) :=

'OUTPUT_TYPE' || CHR(31) ||'.A4/TA4J_C' || CHR(30) || 'DESCRIPTION' || CHR(31) ||'.A-4/TA-4J_C'||

CHR(30); BEGIN Output_Type_Api.New__(C1,B1,A1,D1,'DO'); END;

declare A1 VARCHAR2(50) := NULL; B1 VARCHAR2(50) := NULL; C1 VARCHAR2(50) := NULL; D1 VARCHAR2(50) :=

'OUTPUT_TYPE' || CHR(31) ||'.A4/TA4J_N' || CHR(30) || 'DESCRIPTION' || CHR(31) ||'.A-4/TA-4J_N'||

CHR(30); BEGIN Output_Type_Api.New__(C1,B1,A1,D1,'DO'); END;

DECLARE A1 VARCHAR2(50) := NULL; B1 VARCHAR2(50) := NULL; C1 VARCHAR2(50) := NULL; D1 VARCHAR2(50) :=

'OUTPUT_TYPE' || CHR(31) ||'.A4/TA4J_O' || CHR(30) || 'DESCRIPTION' || CHR(31) ||'.A-4/TA-4J_O'||

CHR(30); BEGIN Output_Type_Api.New__(C1,B1,A1,D1,'DO'); END;

without knowing anything about your API how about:

declare
      A1 VARCHAR2(50) := NULL;
      B1 VARCHAR2(50) := NULL;
      C1 VARCHAR2(50) := NULL;
      D1 VARCHAR2(50) := 'OUTPUT_TYPE' || CHR(31) ||'.A4/TA4J_C' || CHR(30) || 'DESCRIPTION' || CHR(31) ||'.A-4/TA-4J_C'|| CHR(30);
BEGIN
      Output_Type_Api.New__(C1,B1,A1,D1,'DO');

      D1 := 'OUTPUT_TYPE' || CHR(31) ||'.A4/TA4J_N' || CHR(30) || 'DESCRIPTION' || CHR(31) ||'.A-4/TA-4J_N'|| CHR(30);
      Output_Type_Api.New__(C1,B1,A1,D1,'DO');

      D1 := 'OUTPUT_TYPE' || CHR(31) ||'.A4/TA4J_O' || CHR(30) || 'DESCRIPTION' || CHR(31) ||'.A-4/TA-4J_O'|| CHR(30);
      Output_Type_Api.New__(C1,B1,A1,D1,'DO');
END;

If you want to have one PL/SQL block that runs each statement serially (not in parallel)

declare 
  A1 VARCHAR2(50) := NULL; 
  B1 VARCHAR2(50) := NULL; 
  C1 VARCHAR2(50) := NULL; 
  D1 VARCHAR2(50) := 'OUTPUT_TYPE' || CHR(31) ||'.A4/TA4J_C' || CHR(30) || 'DESCRIPTION' || CHR(31) ||'.A-4/TA-4J_C'|| CHR(30); 
BEGIN 
  Output_Type_Api.New__(C1,B1,A1,D1,'DO'); 

  D1 := 'OUTPUT_TYPE' || CHR(31) ||'.A4/TA4J_N' || CHR(30) || 'DESCRIPTION' || CHR(31) ||'.A-4/TA-4J_N'||CHR(30);

  Output_Type_Api.New__(C1,B1,A1,D1,'DO'); 

  D1 := 'OUTPUT_TYPE' || CHR(31) ||'.A4/TA4J_O' || CHR(30) || 'DESCRIPTION' || CHR(31) ||'.A-4/TA-4J_O'|| CHR(30); 
  Output_Type_Api.New__(C1,B1,A1,D1,'DO'); 
END;

If you really want all three calls to be run in parallel (so that the third call may be made before the first call), you could potentially use the DBMS_JOB package.  But I doubt that's what you're looking for unless Output_Type_Api.New__ is a relatively long-running call.

I think you need a "/" after each "end;" statement.

since you are on 10g, use DBMS_SCHEDULER to have jobs if you want to run them all at once ( parallely ).

Do not use DBMS_JOB

as awking000 says
with sqlplus you need to separate pl/sql blocks with /

and indenting helps readability ...
