Another special column, jcr:score, that does not correspond to any actual property, must also be present in the result table.
The jcr:score can be used to return a relevance value for each row. The calculation of this value is not defined. It is not required to always be meaningful. If it is meaningful then it may, for example, be associated with the result of a CONTAINS() function (see 220.127.116.11 CONTAINS). Alternatively it may not be connected to full text search at all, and may reflect a relevance value derived according to some other criteria.
Support for comparing jcr:score in the WHERE clause is not required.
In some implementations the label for this column may not be literally “jcr:score” but instead be the function name “jcr:score(...)”.
