IntelliJ WebStorm PhpStorm Java-JDK 8.0 x64

Hey, why not running Jetbrains using your JDK? x64? Good!!!
–> Follow those snippets (cmd commands) to run your Jetbrains editors using *your* (or any custom) JDK version, use the x64 version (if your PC supports it..), which will allow you better performances, and will supports even higher memory allocation.
