As DWG is a proprietary format, I belive it will be difficult to do this 
with only open-source software.
Supposedly, you can use FME to do it, and I think there is some 
organisation that has a 'open-source' like library for reading DWG data.

There are no methods for dealing with DWG in Maestro or the Maestro API, 
for the above reasons.

As for SHP, it is fairly easy to do this:
IServerConnection con = new HttpServerConnection(url, username, 
password, locale, false);
FeatureSource fs = new FeatureSource();
fs.Provider = "OSGeo.SHP.3.3"; //Adjust if you are not using FDO 3.3
fs.Parameter = new NameValueCollection();
fs.Parameter["DefaultFileLocation"] = 
"%MG_DATA_FILE_PATH%ShapeFile.SHP"; //Can use absolute path here
string resId = "Library://MyShpFile.FeatureSource";
con.SaveResourceAs(fs, resId);
using(System.IO.FileStream fs = 
    con.SetResourceData(resId, "ShapeFile.SHP", ResourceDataType.File, fs);

The above code will create a managed copy of your shape data.
If you want an unmanaged copy, just change "DefaultFileLocation" to the 
absolute path, and remove the "SetResourceData" call.
