Use U-boot to load barebone project

Hi All,

As we know the usual process of booting embedded Linux is:
>Power up, U-boot gets loaded to RAM by some primary loader
>U-boot loads Linux kernel to RAM and release control to Linux kernel
>Linux kernel runs any userland application.

Here is my question. I wish my platform to run a barebone project without the Linux kernel, but I still want to use U-boot as my secondary boot loader. ie.
>Power up, U-boot gets loaded to RAM by some primary loader
>U-boot loads my barebone project to RAM and start executing the project.

What does it take to achieve this? I have tried to put my barebone project to the kernel partition but it didn't work.

Thank you all in advance!
