I have web-app which uses SQL server to get/set data.

Where is the best place to hold the connection string data?

In WEB.CONFIG, attribute sqlConnectionString="..."  in tag <sessionState> used for session-data-saving, right?

I prefer to use me.Session("sqlConnectionString") = strConnectionString, and retrieve like this:

msgbox me.Session("sqlConnectionString")
