No. As a generic JCR content repository Jackrabbit supports all sorts
of content and metadata structures, but there is no specific support
(predefined node types, etc.) for OAI-PMH or other similar

It should be fairly straightforward to defined node types for the
content model specified by OAI-PMH and write a servlet that exposes
such content as specified. Alternatively, if you already have a
repository with metadata in some other format, the servlet could
transform the information to OAI-PMH on the fly.
