User login from mobile app

I am planning to write a android application that logs into a remote user
database. Once logged in the user can perform multiple tasks. I need some
guidance on the technologies I need to read up to achieve it. I read up
OpenLDAP, and Unbound API's for LDAP. Soon I will prototype the LDAP way.

I was thinking of providing the OpenID way of login. So anyone with a openID
login should be able to use my services. Any guidance there ?

One last approach I had was using a MySQL database.

Its a simple task. Multiple applications I use today on my Nokia phone do
user login. So I know its possible. I just need some guidance on where to
start looking/reading.

Thanks in advance

2. textview and selectors


I have some TextViews that are clickable and focusable and I tried to
set their background with a selector:

<TextView style="@style/tv_style1"/>

<style name="tv_style1">
  <item name="android:layout_width">fill_parent</item>
  <item name="android:layout_height">fill_parent</item>
  <item name="android:clickable">true</item>
  <item name="android:focusable">true</item>
  <item name="android:background">@drawable/tv_bcg_selector</item>

in file drawable/tv_bcg_selector.xml
<selector xmlns:android="">
  <item android:state_selected="true" android:color="#0000FF"/>
  <item android:color="#00FF00"/>

but whenever I run the application it stops unexpectedly, I tried to
run with the selector empty and it does run, but not with it filled,
maybe I'm missing something about selectors
