Disconnected Service Agent

I used to use the Disconnected Service Agent App block. Now i see that the app block is somehow discontinued. Is there any option?

My main use for the app block is to abstract external services and external datatypes. I have do integrate some services from IBM Maximo. The data types that come from de IBM services are something like this: IBM.Type.String or IBM.Type.Long and i prefer to have .NET data types in my business layer instead of this "exotic" datatypes 'polluting' the layer. Is there any alternative do the discontinued app block.

If not can someone indicate me an alternative solution(an article or semething)

Perhaps you can get some help at http://smartclient.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=Disconnected%20Service%20Agent%20(DSA) (but it doesn't seem that active) or try a more general purpose site (e.g. Stack Overflow).  I couldn't find a good alternative or even a link to the source code.
