A connection-oriented service means you have reasonable expectations of the connection, in computer terminology, it means that the service enables that you are connected exactly when needed. This include TCP, where each packet is acknowledged, and hence guarantee is made about the connection

In connectionless service, no such guarantee is made, and hence the data packets are sent with just the destination address and no routing information. The examples include IP(Internet Protocol) and UDP Packets.
