Is this correct hookup for a DC jack with a DPDT switch setup.

In a DPDT setup, the switch doesn't do anything to the powersupply, so that doesn't matter. The main thing is you want it to work with both battery and DC wallwart, and switch the battery off when there's no input jack inserted. Since you're hooking up bat- to the input jack's ring connection that's ok.

The rest looks fine, but it always pays to *measure*. Make sure the upper contact on the DC jack is the one connected to the barrel when there's a DC plug inserted, the lower one then connects to nothing. Make sure these two short when there's no plug inserted.
Center pin negative, looks ok to me.
