I have been trying to get Gradle working in intellij 10.5 so I can run some sample projects that were not in Maven. So I installed the Gradle plugin, even though IDEA supports Gradle for editing, I wanted a way to run Gradle tasks in the IDE.

However when I ran the plugin, I was getting this failure in the Gradle console:

Executing command: "tasks" Failed to connect to gradle process for command 'tasks'

ERROR: JAVA_HOME is set to an invalid directory: C:\Program Files\JetBrains\IntelliJ IDEA 10.5\jre

Please set the JAVA_HOME variable in your environment to match the location of your Java installation.

I did see this posting

I then created a new environment variable called IDEA_JDK to point to %JAVA_HOME% and restarted Intellij and Gradle plugin works great.
