    Enable webhcat to run JDBC connection for Hive DDL queries

    This is a change in `HcatDelegator` to run Hive DDL queries over **JDBC** connection in
contrast to slow `hcat` command.
    
    Motivation is basically speed. The way `HcatDelegator` launches new `hcat` scripts per
call makes it unsuitable for interactive REST calls. 
    
    This change speeds up /ddl queries from normally 10-20 sec down to few milliseconds. No
connection pooling is in place to make the RP small but that can be added anytime. 
    
    Also being JDBC connection, this is pretty secure and compatible with all access policies
define in Hive server2. User does not have visibility over other databases (which used to
be the case in `hcat` mode.)
    
    To switch to JDBC mode simply add this configuration to **webhcat-site.xml**
    
    ```xml
    <property>
          <name>templeton.ddl.mode</name>
          <value>jdbc</value>
    </property>
    <property>
          <name>hive.jdbc.url</name>
          <value>jdbc:hive2://server:port</value>
    </property>
    ```
    
    For secure environments we also need these attributes in webhcat-site.xml configuration:
    
    ```xml
        <property>
          <name>hive.server2.kerberos.keytab</name>
          <value>/etc/security/keytabs/hive.service.keytab</value>
        </property>
    
        <property>
          <name>hive.server2.kerberos.principal</name>
          <value>hive/_HOST@{REALM}</value>
        </property>
    ```
    
    This change uses Hive DDL JSON output so that should be allowed in **hiveserver2-site.xml**
    
    ```xml
        <property>
          <name>hive.security.authorization.sqlstd.confwhitelist.append</name>
          <value>hive.ddl.output.format</value>
        </property>
    ```
