[~bvellanki], your thoughts? I will take the task up as a penalty for not catching it during
the review :-).

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FALCON-1442

> The bug is related to patch for FALCON-1371. Sorry to rake this up after the patch has
been committed. I completely missed a problem when I reviewed the patch. My bad. The patch
introduces 4-5 methods such as the one below:
> {code}
> public abstract boolean isActive(Map<String, BundleJob> bundles) throws FalconException;
> {code}
> This totally breaks the contract of the WorkflowEngine. The Workflow Engine API is not
supposed to expose the internal details (whether the entity is submitted as bundle or not).
The worflow engine API should accept only entities known to Falcon (such as cluster, entity,
> The new methods cause problem with the native scheduler (which extends AbsractWorkflowEngine)
as the native scheduler does not work with bundles.
> I understand that the reason it was introduced was to optimize the number of calls, but,
I would rather have the cleaner separation :-)
