Just a note on 9-patch, even though stretching of the borders is the simplest, and looks good in many (most?) situations, you can also chose to repeat or clip them.
Might be a better idea if the borders have lots of intricate detail.
Can look a bit weird for the user if windows are dynamically resizable by the user though.

UIs generally does not play nice when scaled down, so if your problem is the low end of the resolutions, you might have to think about having different, lower res, decorations at lower resolution. (or just accept it doesn't look "perfect" and realize not many of your customers will have that experience anyhow, so maybe not so important to spend time on)

If the UI is very complicated, you might need different layout too, but as long as the screen has roughly the same apect ratio (doesn have portrait mode or such like mobile devices), you probably can create a layout that works for all.
