Use DBMS_JOB package to submit many concurrent jobs.

I was just getting ready to suggest the same thing but with dbms_scheduler.

Here's a sample that submits 10 concurrent jobs that each sleep for 5 seconds.

begin

	for i in 1..10 loop
		dbms_scheduler.create_job (  
     		job_name            => 'IMMEDIATE_JOB' || to_char(i),  
     		job_type            => 'PLSQL_BLOCK',  
     		job_action          => 'begin dbms_lock.sleep(5); rollback; end; ',  
     		number_of_arguments => 0,  
     		enabled             => TRUE,  
     		auto_drop           => TRUE,  
     		comments            => 'Immediate, one-time run');
	end loop;
end;
/


select count(*) from v$process;
