Definition Container

Draft 04 Draft 06 Draft 07

The root schema may contain a definition container, this holds the definitions for named schemas that can then be referenced within the schema.

This provides a mechanism for re-use and extensibility within the Json Schema.

It is good practice to define any commonly used data types here and then reference them.

It is allowable for a definition to contain references to other definitions (and even itself).
