Accessing ArcObjects outside of ArcMap, Catalog, etc. and connecting to an SDE db

Hello,

I recently began learning ArcObjects (C#), and successfully create a Desktop Add-in with a dockable window. 

My next challenge is to use ArcObjects outside of ESRI software (ArcMap, ArcCatalog, etc.) that will connect and list features in an SDE database connection.

i.e. - A regular windows form with a single button that when clicked, will connect to the SDE, and fill a listbox with the feature classes within it.

Is this possible to use ArcObjects without creating an Add-in?  Any tips on how to perform this simple connect and access to featureclasses is much appreciated!


Thank you,

Kevin
