The gadget spec URL could not be found

Congratulations on successfully deploying your first application on Google App Engine using OrangeScape!

Now, let's explore the deployed application and then review its implementation using OrangeScape. During our exploration of the application, we will try to document the features so that we can review it later and understand how it has been implemented using OrangeScape. The deployed application will be served from the appspot.com domain used for deployment.

Follow the directions given below.

Log into your application at http://your-application-name.appspot.com using "sales@teeq.com" user ID.

Use "sales@teeq.com" User ID to login. Password authentication has not been enabled for this trial application. Hence, the User ID alone would do.
