Binary Serialization of VCL-based object

I am interested in serializing a win32  object from one process to another on the same PC or possibly across the LAN.
I am currently looking into DCOM and CORBA to facilitate this, however I am interested in transferring the object rather than remotely invoking methods on a server-based object.

Are there any Java-like Serializable methods available to me thru the VCL?
I am currently using C++Builder 6.0 Ent Suite, but I am also considering Delphi.


Performance is of paramount importance.
Java and SOAP would be too slow, unfortunately.

Thank you
Scott

You can use the [Serializable] class attribute of .NET framework. Please refer to these links.

Can I implement this outside of the .NET environment or do I need that framework?
I am trying to avoid any additional overhead
