Expand archives in project view (jar/war/ear/zip)?


I am currently fighting with gradle to make it assemble the bootWar the exact way I need it.

Everytime I try something new, I have to right-click on the build/libs/foo.war, select "Open in Dolphin", open it in Ark and check the contents.

It would be so much easier, if I could just expand the war right in the project tree.

For sure somebody else must have requested this before, but I have not found an issue in Youtrack,

So; Is it possible somehow to view archive contents right in IDEA? Or else: Is there an issue I can vote on?

Thanks for finding that for me!

I tried searching for "expand zip in project view" (or "... project tree"), but that failed to find this issue.
