DESCRIPTION ^

Schema class for Oryx.

The use of this class is optional.

The intention is to allow arbitrary grouping of classes into different namespaces to support simultaneous use of different storage backends, or for having logically separate groups of classes in the same database, but having table names prefixed to provide namespace separation.
