You can configure the index to aggregate the fulltext index of
subnodes for certain node types. See

It will probably look something like that:

<aggregate primaryType="my:Page">

This way, a jcr:contains() on my:Page nodes will also include the
fulltext data from the subnodes. There is no unlimited recursion
include paramter, so you'll might have to add some longer */*/*
chains, depending on how deep your subtree can be.

The //*[jcr:contains(....)] in the predicate does not work, as JCR's
xpath does not support sub-axis checks in predicates.
