+<p>A <strong>Schema</strong> is a set of elements that are used by the
<strong>LDAP Server</strong> to describe the data that are stored. The top two
elements are <strong>ObjectClass* and </strong>AttributeType<strong>. An
</strong>ObjectClass<strong> is a container, describing what an </strong>LDAP<strong>
entry can contain, while an </strong>AttributeType** describe each singe element stored
in this container.</p>
+<p>The key here is that an <strong>LDAP</strong> entry uses <strong>ObjectClasses</strong>
to list all the possible <strong>AttributeTypes</strong> that entry can contain,
some of them being mandatory, some other optional.</p>
+<p>Now, there is more. We have many other <strong>Schema Objects</strong>
that are colateral:</p>
+<li><strong>LdapComparator</strong> (<em>ApacheDS</em> specific)</li>
+<li><strong>Normalizer</strong> (<em>ApacheDS</em> specific)</li>
+<li><strong>SyntaxChecker</strong> (<em>ApacheDS</em> specific)</li>
+<p>Most of those elements are defined in <a href="">RFC
4512</a>, we have added three others (<strong>LDdapComparator</strong>,
<strong>Normalizer</strong> and <strong>SyntaxChecker</strong>) in
order to make the server easy to extend by adding some new ones.</p>
+<p>Those <strong>SchemaObjects</strong> are used to refine the relation
between elements, or define their syntax, or some other constraints. The most important ones
are <strong>LdapComparator</strong>, <strong>MatchingRule</strong>,
<strong>Normalizer</strong>, <strong>Syntax</strong> and <strong>SyntaxChecker</strong>.
All of them have dependencies, exposed in this picture:</p>
