Difference between AppSettings vs Connection Strings


  • AppSettings:

    In 2.0 we have used to store connection strings in app settings, app settings are useful to store constants,smtp mail settings,username and passwords of the third party api's.appsettings doesn't contain provider name.


    From 3.5 on wards we are using connection strings in connection string settings.This block is useful to define this section we can give provider name also.
