    KAFKA-4449: Add Serializer/Deserializer for POJO

    Currently, there are only build-in serializer/deserializer for basic data type (String,
Long, etc). It's better to have serializer/deserializer for POJO.
    If we had this, user can serialize/deserialize all of their POJO with it. Otherwise, user
may need to create e pair of serializer and deserializer for each kind of POJO, just like
the implementation in the stream example PageViewTypeDemo
    Let's take above streams-example as an example, Serde was created for PageView as below
            final Serializer<PageView> pageViewSerializer = new JsonPOJOSerializer<>();
            serdeProps.put("JsonPOJOClass", PageView.class);
            pageViewSerializer.configure(serdeProps, false);
            final Deserializer<PageView> pageViewDeserializer = new JsonPOJODeserializer<>();
            serdeProps.put("JsonPOJOClass", PageView.class);
            pageViewDeserializer.configure(serdeProps, false);
            final Serde<PageView> pageViewSerde = Serdes.serdeFrom(pageViewSerializer,
    If we use this POJO serializer/deserializer, the Serde can be created with only one line
