Bottomline remains that longer range missiles would be meaningless if restricted by the onboard rada
That is correct however there was a discussion that Awacs can guide these missiles in case onboard radar on the firing aircraft doesn't possess long range radar.

This is possible theoretically but the integration required between various platforms as well as systems appears to be of very high order.

I don’t know if this exists with either PAF or IAF.

Our awacs can guide missiles, same must be true for Indian Awacs.

Guiding missiles is not a problem. Integrating the AWACS with the platform launching the missile appears to be a complex issue.
Considering that these platforms are made by different countries this is further complicated.

In case of SD10 or lets say Pl15, ZDK can do it easily as both missile and the platform are from China.

Integrating missile will not be very difficult if plane has open system architect. It allows easy integration. In other case, the software languages can be a major hurdle in Integration. For example, an American missile is hard to integrate with Russian plane and vice a versa. Open system architecture makes the task easy. Same is the case with modular design. It is easy to replace a part in same kind of design. India strictly follow modular designing approach in its weapon development.
JF-17 is fully modular and its software is coded in C++.
