Is he a bruiser, or a carry?

He has defensive abilities... but also has high sustained DPS based mostly off AA, with the aid of TF procs from W, and little direct ability damage. Xin has MUCH higher direct ability damage (if you consider his Q attacks as ability damage... which is reasonable considering they penetrate dodge) and is considered a carry.

Or am I confusing my definitions? I think of a carry as an AA monkey, who just uses his abilities to augment his AA and for utility... and that's largely how I think of Jax... his only non-utility ability damage is his W, which doesn't really hit that hard in and of itself, even geared hybrid, and his ult passive which is effectively part of his AA.

Well, Jax is kind of ridiculous right now.
He has damage almost on par with a carry, yet defense on par with the tankier bruisers.

Jax is Dunkmaster Supreme. Don't listen to what they say about Jarvan, or even Yi. Jax's dunks per second are higher and more intense than anything you ever imagined.

He's a bursty tanky mobile carry.
