Although the Schema Composer can generate schema for a number of recognized standards, it also features a scripting solution for those users who want control over the format and medium of the schema. When you specify a script to the generator, it is referring to a language script such as Javascript that has exists in your model. How and what the script produces is pretty much up to you. How the script accesses the schema in the Schema Composer is documented in the Scripting integration topic.
