can we use a gst plugin alone without using the pipeline ?

I am not pro in gstreamer, but the closest solution that comes to my mind is
to use appsrc ! decoder ! appsink
So you need to have a pipeline but you provide data from your software and
you get decoded stream back to your software.
I am working now on appsrc solution for my program.
