ASP.NET Configuration APIĀ 

The ASP.NET configuration API allows you to develop, deploy, and manage application configuration data by using a single programming interface. Using the configuration API, you can develop and modify complete ASP.NET configurations programmatically without directly editing the XML in the configuration files. In addition, you can use the configuration API in console applications and scripts that you develop, in Web-based management tools, and in MMC snap-ins.
