Is there a way to check whether an integer is a prime or not in O(log(n))?

Yes, Test BPSW is non-proved algorithm, that works in O(log3(n)), but at that time there was no counter-case, it was check till 1e15 numbers, so you can use it, but it too difficult, for most of problems O(sqrt(n)) checking is enough. Link to BPSW
