OSchema - createClass()

Creates a new class in the schema.

Creating Classes

OrientDB has the concept of class within the database, which represents a broad grouping of records, similar to the table in relational contexts. Internally, OrientDB represents a class as an OClass instance. Using this method you can create a new class in the schema. Database classes are also polymorphic, you can assign an existing class as a superclass to the new class.
