Building an Administration based Component for Joomla 2.5

Using the Hello World as a basis for a component, found at Joomla 2.5 Hello World Component Example []

There's a couple of things missing on this page and that's the examples for

admin/sql/updates/index.html and admin/sql/updates/mysql/index.html are missing. 

You can find the example code for that at

which is to put

  DROP TABLE IF EXISTS `#__productmapper`;
    CREATE TABLE `#__productmapper` (
    `id` int(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
    `greeting` varchar(25) NOT NULL,
    PRIMARY KEY (`id`)
    INSERT INTO `#__productmapper` (`greeting`) VALUES
    ('DB Hello World!'),
    ('DB Good bye World!');

in both files. 

The other thing that's missing is the zip files for the project.   Here's mine for the very basic starting point of the component.  Mine has been relabelled 'productmapper'
