It is absolutely not necessary to have a configuration file, in order to use OpenAccess during the runtime of your application. An OpenAccessContext, which is the object providing API for database CRUD operations is usually instantiated using the name of a connection string which is stored in the configuration file. This parameter though can be replaced by a full connection string when a configuration file is not available.
