The difference between an editor and a view in eclipse is that an editor 
can have
multiple instances, a view can only have one instance. Usually if you 
have an application
which is working with some kind of document which can be opened you also 
want be
able to open multiple documents at once.

The Cas Editor assumes that you open the CAS in an editor. If you don't 
do that you cannot
reuse anything.

Though I do not understand why you don't want to use editors.
