>>         <action url="x.jsp?map=Constants.DOCUMENT">Modify</uiName>
this is not correct XML.
did you mean :
<action url="x.jsp?map=<%=Constants.DOCUMENT%>"><uiName>Modify</uiName></action>

>>       <action url="x.jsp?map=Constants.DOCUMENT">Modify</uiName>

In any case, uiName can't close the action tag ->
  <action url="x.jsp?map=Constants.DOCUMENT"><uiName>Modify</uiName></action>

You can do replacement using class reflection

String getConst(String name)
{
   int i=name.lastIndexOf('.');
   if (i<0) return name;
   try{
      return String.valueOf(
                 Class.forName(name.substring(0,i))
                    .getDeclaredField(name.substring(i+1))
                    .get(null)
               );
   }catch(Exception ex){ /* not found */ return name; }
}

Then replace constant value in url :

String replaceUrl(String url)
{
    int s=url.indexOf('?'),i,j;
    while(s>=0)
    {
         s++;
         i=url.indexOf('&',s);
         j=url.indexOf('=',s);
         if ((j>0)&&((i<0)||(j<i)))
         {
             String t=getConst((i<0)?url.substring(j+1):url.substring(j+1,i));
             url=url.substring(0,j+1)+t+((i<0)?"":url.substring(i));
             if (i>=0) i=j+1+t.length();
         }
         s=i;
    }
    return url;
}
