JSR 170 does not define any methods that deal with highlighting search results. 
Therefore jackrabbit does not implement such a functionality. But I'm not sure 
if that's what you are looking for.

if your XML document is exploded as document view under the nt:resource node as 
jcr:data child node you could use the following query:

//p[jcr:contains(jcr:xmltext, 'security')](@xml:id, @xml:lang)

if your XML document is stored as a binary property jcr:data, then you'd 
probably have to write your own query handler or do some post processing to get 
the id and lang information.

see above.
