Not directly. If you access the repository through the JCR API, it is
completely transparent how things are actually persisted. You would
run two queries at least, one in JCR to get a list of nodes and then
use that information for joining with your other data in the db.

When just going to the H2 DB directly, it will probably be hard to
build queries, as the standard persistence managers store the data in
a binary form, optimized for JCR usage. So you can't easily query for
property values, for example. (In Jackrabbit the query is done with
the help of Lucene indexes). The only thing readily available will be
the UUID of the nodes.

A possible solution is to put the DB data into the JCR.
