I assumed pre 6 I'd outdo jax.

I did more or less.

When preparing for after level 6, I wasn't sure whether to just build the usual AD and lifesteal, or to build a bit of early resist.

His damage is pretty well split between physical and magic at 6, itemising armour wouldn't have got me much, but even with dorans, bruta, cloth armour, he out traded me easily. sad face.

He'd jump me, stun land a hit or 2 and run away. To equal the trade I had to chase hard, and that pushed minions because of all the aoe. Then the trade was a loss anyway, he has more base hp.

What should I have done instead?

hit your stun and dash away

or, when you see him jump on your or prepare his stun to jump on you, dash out of his range.

Dash backwards as he jumps to mitigate the damage, stun him for part of his dodge, and get out of stun range. You'd be so far back at this point the minions would trade for you.

jax will most probably E (prepare stun) before he Q (jump). so you just have to W-out, so he will waste his Q, and you can Q-A-Q-A-Q-A to him or whatever if he is still in range. If he happens to hit you with his Q, your shield will absorb some considerable damage (and if he just hit-run all the time, a shield is the only thing that you need to counter that). This works because there is a delay small delay between the Q's hit from jax, and whatever he do next.

no good jax loads stun before he jumps. if he does that riven should win every time. if riven dodges jax e and jump jax takes riven full combo

After Jax hits 6 it is a very hard lane for Riven. He will out trade you everytime unless your Ult is up, and his Ult Active will make him hard to burst down.
