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

Is there a way to alias the path to my custom view class (perhaps in 
its <styleable>) so I can say

never found a solution.)

Just a "nice to have" thing.

2. Custom View Subclass - How do I properly specify xmlns in my layout.xml file?

I am following the and associated custom_view_1.xml
layout files to guide me, but I am perplexed by the xmlns:app
specification. My custom view is in the package. What do I
specify as the xmlns:app value to properly bind my XML layout
declarations to the attribute set my custom view constructor

I've tried xmlns:app="", xmlns:app="http://", xmlns:app="http://" to no avail.

Its not clear to me why the api example uses an http: scheme in the
first place. Shouldn't the package name be adequately unique?
