The WebLogic Server Message Editor (documented at http://docs.oracle.com/middleware/1213/wls/LOGSV/msgeditr.htm#LOGSV168) in WLS 12.1.3 fails to create a new log messages catalog. The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Execute setDomainEnv.
  2. Run java weblogic.MsgEditor.
  3. Go to File -> New catalog. Fill in all the fields and select Catalog type: Log Messages.
  4. Hit create catalog.

The catalog file is not created nor is it loaded into the WebLogic Server Message Catalog Editor GUI.
