[strongSwan] Building Android strongswan with Android Studio on Windows

I am interested in building Android strongswan with Android Studio on
Windows + running it in the Android emulator provided with Google.

We're currently debugging a failed IKEv2 connection between an Android
phone and a openBSD gateway and I would like to try the connection from
the emulator. There, the debug tools could help me to detect the cause
of the problem.

But when I download the ZIP strongswan-master from GIT, I am unable to
get the Android Studio to compile the Android client. To tell the truth,
I am not sure how and where to start. I "imported" the project to the
Android Studio, but after a few seconds of build, the system complains
about missing AndroidManifest.xml.

AndroidManifest.xml is present in the src subdirectory
(src/frontends/android/app/src/main), but the Studio does not seem to be
aware of it. I am attaching a screenshot.

Is there anyone with any experience regarding build of StrongSwan on
Android Studio? Perhaps we could put some instructions together, as they
might be helpful for other people, too.

Best regards
