the match attribute should contain your regular expressions (where
btw in java '\' has to be masked with a leading '\' so it should be
'\\') not a group, a '\' followed by a digit means a specific group of
your regular expression f.e. \0 =all, the whole match, \1 = group 1,
\2 = group 2 ... and so on

so you should write something like (don't know your regular expression
or text you need to replace)
<replaceregexp file="database.sql" match="\d+(blabla)\d+" replace="\1"
flags="g" />

If you want further help you should come up with more details.
What do you need to be replaced in your sql file ?
Maybe some snippet of your sql would be helpful.
