2.0. Sample coordinator application

The coordinator application starts executing upon availability of the trigger file defined and initiates the two workflows.  Both workflows generate reports off of data in hdfs.
The java main action parses log files and generates a report.  
The hive actions in the hive sub-workflow run reports off of hive tables against the same log files in hdfs.
