I was wondering why intellij uses IDEA_JDK to point to the java home it should use, instead of the more common JAVA_HOME?

Cause they might be different.

JAVA_HOME usually points to JRE rather than JDK which is unsufficient to
run IDEA due to missing tools.jar required for debugging and compiling.
