you know what instance is, right?

now how can u get into the instance? you need to log into the you need a login for that.

if you want to give access to a database for few users, you need to create users for that database and need to map those user accounts to the login accounts.

users- to access database
login- to access instance

schema is just like a name space like name spaces in xml.
schema can be used for organizational identity purpose.
schema is strictly not used to provide security. It is only used for naming purpose.
