Oracle setting

I started to initiate a .net web application with Oracle at the back end. My first time to connect Oracle. I have the following setting in the web.config file -

<configuration>
  <connectionStrings>
    <add name="AppServ"
         connectionString="data source=.\SQLEXPRESS;Integrated Security=SSPI;AttachDBFilename=|DataDirectory|\inetdb.mdf;User Instance=true"
         providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />
  </connectionStrings>

  <appSettings>
    <add key="MyAppConn" value="User Id=inepuser; Password=inepPwd; Data Source=lt10gr2; Enlist=false"/>
   </appSettings>

Is it right setting?

no, that connection string is for SQL Server.
to start with; System.Data.SqlClient  is not correct, you do have several choices.
either some generic OleDb client or the Oracle client, both needs specific code, you cannot use the same code for sql server and oracle (unless you use the generic OleDb code

Thank you for your comment. I was a SQL server person and now switch to Oracle. I use ODP.net. I tried to find the right setting in web.config for Oracle connection setting. I appreciate any one who can help me with issue.
