The code for the Android App is licensed under the GPLv2 license, as is
the rest of the strongSwan project.  Therefore, if your own application
is also a GPL licensed open source software you are free to use the
code.  If that is not the case, you must not do that.  But we could
provide the code for the App under a commercial license, which allows
you to use it in commercial, closed source applications, contact us
directly if you are interested.

What kind of application do you develop?  Perhaps an Intent-based
invocation of a configured connection in the strongSwan App might also
work for your use case (the Intent could perhaps even contain the
parameters needed to setup the VPN connection, so no previous
configuration would be necessary).
