There is an easier way than the one written by CommonsWare. Just create a drawable resource that specifies the way the EditText will be drawn:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!--  res/drawable/rounded_edittext.xml -->
<shape xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:shape="rectangle" android:padding="10dp">
 <solid android:color="#FFFFFF"/>
    <corners
     android:bottomRightRadius="15dp"
     android:bottomLeftRadius="15dp"
  android:topLeftRadius="15dp"
  android:topRightRadius="15dp"/>
</shape>

Then, just reference this drawable in your layout:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:orientation="vertical"
    android:layout_width="fill_parent"
    android:layout_height="fill_parent"
    >
<EditText  
    android:layout_width="fill_parent" 
    android:layout_height="wrap_content" 
    android:padding="5dip"
    android:background="@drawable/rounded_edittext" />
</LinearLayout>

You will get something like:

alt text

Based on Mark's comment, I want to add the way you can create different states for your EditText:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!-- res/drawable/rounded_edittext_states.xml -->
<selector xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
    <item 
     android:state_pressed="true" 
     android:state_enabled="true"
        android:drawable="@drawable/rounded_focused" />
    <item 
     android:state_focused="true" 
     android:state_enabled="true"
        android:drawable="@drawable/rounded_focused" />
    <item 
     android:state_enabled="true"
        android:drawable="@drawable/rounded_edittext" />
</selector>

These are the states:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!-- res/drawable/rounded_edittext_focused.xml -->
<shape xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:shape="rectangle" android:padding="10dp">
 <solid android:color="#FFFFFF"/>
 <stroke android:width="2dp" android:color="#FF0000" />
    <corners
     android:bottomRightRadius="15dp"
     android:bottomLeftRadius="15dp"
  android:topLeftRadius="15dp"
  android:topRightRadius="15dp"/>
</shape>

And... now, the EditText should look like:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:orientation="vertical"
    android:layout_width="fill_parent"
    android:layout_height="fill_parent">
<EditText  
    android:layout_width="fill_parent" 
    android:layout_height="wrap_content" 
    android:text="@string/hello"
    android:background="@drawable/rounded_edittext_states"
    android:padding="5dip"/>
</LinearLayout>

Here is the same solution (with some extra bonus code) in just one XML file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!--  res/drawable/edittext_rounded_corners.xml -->
<selector xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">

<item android:state_pressed="true" android:state_focused="true">
    <shape>
        <solid android:color="#FF8000"/>
        <stroke
            android:width="2.3dp"
            android:color="#FF8000" />
         <corners
            android:radius="15dp" />
    </shape>
</item>

<item android:state_pressed="true" android:state_focused="false">
    <shape>
        <solid android:color="#FF8000"/>
        <stroke
            android:width="2.3dp"
            android:color="#FF8000" />      
        <corners
            android:radius="15dp" />       
    </shape>
</item>

<item android:state_pressed="false" android:state_focused="true">
    <shape>
        <solid android:color="#FFFFFF"/>
        <stroke
            android:width="2.3dp"
            android:color="#FF8000" />  
        <corners
            android:radius="15dp" />                          
    </shape>
</item>

<item android:state_pressed="false" android:state_focused="false">
    <shape>
        <gradient 
            android:startColor="#F2F2F2"
            android:centerColor="#FFFFFF"
            android:endColor="#FFFFFF"
            android:angle="270"
        />
        <stroke
            android:width="0.7dp"                
            android:color="#BDBDBD" /> 
        <corners
            android:radius="15dp" />            
    </shape>
</item>

<item android:state_enabled="true">
    <shape>
        <padding 
                android:left="4dp"
                android:top="4dp"
                android:right="4dp"
                android:bottom="4dp"
            />
    </shape>
</item>

</selector>

You then just set the background attribute to edittext_rounded_corners.xml file:

<EditText  android:id="@+id/editText_name"
      android:background="@drawable/edittext_rounded_corners"/>
