<%=batchMsg..replaceAll("'", "")%>
You may need a null check....
grrrrrr, can I get a word in edgewise ;)

checking for null always seems liek a good idea!  ...and el_dios, you've got one too many dots in there for the replaceAll call:

<%=batchMsg==null?"":batchMsg.replaceAll("'", "")%>

...I'm confused that you sound confused by this?  You're adding the single quotes to the string using the concatination operator.  When you add those single quotes like that, they become a part of the string.  Why are you quoting the batchID anyway, if it's for query there are NO quotes around integer values, so the first suggestion may not be so bad, but no need to append an empty string at the end?

batchMsg+="" + batchID;

is batchID an integer variable?
