Thanks Wolfgang for adding completeness to my response.

condition: the dynamic creations of all Cartesian products of facts
matching the constraints. Example:
$p: Person( age >= 60 )
Car( owner == $p )
This finds all cars owned by persons over 60, which relieves you from the task
of writing loops to determine all matching combinations, which can become quite
cumbersome with increasing complexity.

There is the option of creating a domain specific language on top
of DRL, which is one way of making your business logic intellegible
to non-programmers, so that they can at least understand what's
