Yes, doco sucks a bit when it comes to 1.5. Sorry for that, we are 
working on it.

Short answer : nope
A little bit longer : we are storing the schema in LDAP in ADS 1.5, when 
it was compiled and stored as java classes in 1.0

You can't, but we have other ways to do that. Use Studio, you can import 
a Schema file (openLdap format), and extract a LDIF file from it. Then 
you will just have to import this LDIF file into the server.

Sadly, there is not that much doco which explain the full process...

PS : I would add one thing : if doc sucks, it's because we don't have 
enough peeps and time to improve it. But this is something which can be 
improved easily : we *do* accept contributions !!! And every night, 
before I go to sleep, I light a candle in hope we get more ;) So feel 
free to give us some feedback when you have successfully loaded your 
schema into the server.

Thanks !
