First off, fantastic work on the new WSL2 integration in the latest beta -
I'm assuming the features being added will allow Intellij running on windows to interact with a WSL2 installation in a number of ways:
- Editing sourcecode checked out on Git (already implemented)
- Executing maven / gradle on WSL2 installations
- Running / Debugging Java processes (e.g. Spring Boot applications) within the WSL2 installation
- Integrating the [services] docker plugin to connect to the docker host within the WSL2 installation, allowing running commands / operations on containers, viewing logs etc
Is this somewhat close to the WSL roadmap for this EAP? This would finally allow me to retire virtualbox / vmware for Java development in windows!
