I hope to use the function getINTERVALDS() in OracleResultSet, and find the existing code is using standard java interface ResultSet and PrearedStatement, I am thinking to change the existing ResultSet to OracleResultSet , but not sure if it will affect the existing code somwhat.

My application is only run in Oracle Env, so no concern for the interface with other DBs. Can I change the ResultSet tr OracleResultSet without the effect for existing code? What is the difference between OracleResultSet and ResultSet?

It's Oracle's implementation.

By changing to OracleResultSet, you run the risk of making your code harder to maintain. As a rule of thumb, I wouldn't switch unless what you want to do can't be accomplished by other means. Looking at the JavaDoc for IntervalDS, it looks like a date type object. What do you need from it that getTimestamp() doesn't?
