I need to implement a query like this...

select count(*) as res from table where field1 in (...) and field2 in (...) and field3 in (...) and (time1-time2)<10;

if you want to ensure that you don't use any db vendor specific functions you can always load data & work with it afterwards.. or you can create a database view & do all the activities there....
