Good Tutorial for creating a Joomla component that has user authentication and database insert / update function.

As the title said I'm looking for an easy to follow tutorial for Joomla to create a component that can do the following:

* Has user authentication (the component can't be accessed without logging in)
* Can add / edit / delete data on the custom table added on the joomla database.
* Show's best practice on how to achieve this.

That's all..

I have to clarify that all the things needed to be done is in the FRONT END

* Has user authentication (the component can't be accessed without logging in)
* Can add / edit / delete data on the custom table added on the joomla database.
* Show's best practice on how to achieve this.

User authentication and inserting / updating / deleting data in the database are all done in the front end.

The tutorial on the joomla documentation is just for retrieving data from the database and showing it in the front end, not doing all the editing and saving in the front end.
