this statement is correct. lucene provides such a functionality and a lot more, 
but jackrabbit is limited to the JCR API.

The preferable approach would be to propose an enhancement to the JSR 283 expert 

If we just want to provide a the functionality in a jackrabbit proprietary way 
we need to define:

- is this an enhancement to the query syntax? If yes:
     - how do you state in a query that you are interested in
       highlight information?
     - how is this information returned in a query?

- should we introduce new methods? If yes, where and what methods?
