Unable to launch fixed wing AWACS and ASW planes from carrier and the number of J15 up today is only around 10 shows China still long way from carrier operation.

Without fixed wing AWACSs(early warning) and ASW (anti-submarine hunter) planes onboard of the carrier, it doesn't have the true capability.

China will have to wait for next domestic built carrier with catapult to have a true carrier group.

You need catapult to launch AWAC and ASW planes from the carrier.
