try using

   if(retrievedUserName.equals(userName)&&retrievedPassword.equals(password)&&!(retrievedUserName.equals("") && retrievedPassword.equals("")))

instead of


Before the if(status.equals("Success!")) statement in your validation code, you should do this first to avoid querying the database if any of the text fields are empty in the first place:

boolean errorOccurred = false;
if (strUserName.equals("")) {
    userName.setError("Username is required!");
    errorOccurred = true;

if (strPassword.equals("")) {
    userName.setError("Password is required!");
    errorOccurred = true;

if (errorOccurred) {
    return; // avoids executing the part of your code which queries the db

Checking for whether the input fields' values are null is quite pointless since if they don't contain anything, it will only be an empty string, or "". Then, to simplify your webservice code...

if (result.next()) { // use if instead of while, because ideally, only ONE record should
                     // be returned and hence, no need to loop;

    // then, just get the corresponding password
    retrievedPassword = result.getString("password");

if (retrievedPassword.equals(password)) {
    status = "Success!";

Further suggestion: put "Success!" in a String constant and use that instead of the literal value. You have lesser chances of committing mistakes this way and makes editing your code easier.
