Accepted Answer

use the android:background attribute in your xml. Easiest way if you want to apply it to a whole activity is to put it in the root of your layout. So if you have a RelativeLayout as the start of your xml, put it in here:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:id="@+id/rootRL"
    android:orientation="vertical" 
    android:layout_width="fill_parent"
    android:layout_height="fill_parent" 
    android:background="@drawable/background">
</RelativeLayout>

You can set the "background image" to an activity by setting android:background xml attributes as followings:

(Here, for example, Take a LinearLayout for an activity and setting a background image for the layout(i.e. indirectly to an activity))

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout android:id="@+id/LinearLayout01" 
              android:layout_width="fill_parent" 
              android:layout_height="fill_parent" 
              xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
              android:background="@drawable/icon">
 </LinearLayout>
