Hey,
 
I was wondering whether there is a way to benefit the integration with the Windows Azure publish profiles and use the connection strings within them statically within my code.
 
I mean that I would have to refer, lets say, some collection or some XML stuff, and while deploying my code onto the server, the actual connection string value of the deployment target will be embedded into the code.
 
Is there a way I could achieve something like that? Not having to deal at all with the connection string value, saving lots of potential bugs and debugging hours in the future?
 
Thanks a lot.

You can configure your connection string and other settings as a part of the azure web sites environment. You do this in the configure tab under the web site.
 
Here are two blog posts describing how to do (its for php, but it is pretty much the same for .net):

and
