The only thing I could think of for you is to use a function in the DRL
to store your "name" value, but any solution where you change your DRL will
require you to redeploy the DRL file (obviously).
Since your "name" changes quite often, can't you make it a fact of your
reasoning process? Just to keep with the "Person" theme, make a helper class
called AssignedName or something like that and do:
AssignedName( $an : name )
Person( name == $an )
This will even prevent re-deployments of the DRL itself. Also, a join
like the above has cost O(1), so extremely good perf also (better than a
Drools does not support constants declaration in the DRL file, as you
know, but maybe this is something we could add. Do you want to open a JIRA
with a feature request for that? (That would still require DRL redeployment
discussed above, obviously).

Thanks for your reply Earnie. In the following example, don't want to
hardcode Person Name value like "John" in the DRL file. I want to refer it
from some other sources(If i refer it from java class file, name value is
getting changed quiet often, have to recompile the java source and deploy).
My main requirement is, if the name value is getting changed, don't want to
redeploy/restart the application. i would like to do the changes in the drl
file only without hard coding.
rule "Test Rule"
$person : Person( name == "John")
Please explain, how i can refer global object in LHS?
