I asked my supervisor the database name. He told me the schema name is "xxxx". Is schema name equivalent to the database name?

No. In a physical sense the word schema tends to mean a set of database objects (tables, etc.) owned by a specific user. A database may have several schemas.

You didn't ask about this, but there are also nodes. A node may have several databases.
