Not necessary to check messages. However we can not catch those 
exceptions so we have to analysis output. For an example:

run "java -javaagent:test.jar myclass"

so get output:
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException
         at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke0(Native Method)
         at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(Unknown Source)
         at sun.reflect.DelegatingMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(Unknown Source)
         at java.lang.reflect.Method.invoke(Unknown Source)
sun.instrument.InstrumentationImpl.loadClassAndCallPremain(Unknown So
Caused by: java.lang.IllegalAccessError

In this case we can search for "InvocationTargetException" in the output 
to ensure the expected exception. Sometimes we may also check "cause by" 

This approach seems not perfect. Any comments/suggestions? Thanks!
