Plugin to provide common health check functionality for Play +2.2.3 projects.


This adds two endpoints:

     /ping/ping     - Returns 200 and an empty body
     /admin/details - Returns information about the running service


Add the jar to the projects dependencies:

    "" %% "play-health" % "[INSERT VERSION]"

Additionally, add the following to the routes file:

    ->     /                          health.Routes

The plugin expects to find the apps name in the application.conf under the key appName. For the /admin/details endpoint to work as expected, the applications must include a key Implementation-Title with the same value as appName.
