The schema is an Avro Schema, as documented in the spec.

http://hadoop.apache.org/avro/docs/current/spec.html

One uses SpecificCompiler to generate Java classes and interfaces from 
schemas a protocols.  Once you've generated this code, you can look at 
it to see the Java API for your data.  There are Ant tasks to facilitate 
code generation: ProtocolTask and SchemaTask.

http://hadoop.apache.org/avro/docs/current/api/java/org/apache/avro/specific/package-summary.html

The documentation's not great.  We need a simple tutorial showing how 
this is done.  You can look at the unit tests for examples.
