comment Max no.of records can we test in selenium by using data driven framework
I usually try to record a video, and see if that gives me any information. Another thing to do: Poll for the element. That is: Try to find the element. If Selenium throws an error, catch it. Then pause for (say) 1 second and try again. And again. And again. My clients use polling loops like this all the time, retrying once per second for as long as 90 seconds.

comment Max no.of records can we test in selenium by using data driven framework
If the error was that Selenium was not able to find the dropdown value, then probably Selenium and the test runner are not timing out. Are you certain that the desired dropdown value was present? Might the app be slowing down in some way, so that the value is not yet loaded at the moment when Selenium tries to find it? (Asynchrony can be a big nuisance.)

What terminated the execution? The test runner? The Selenium session? something else?

comment How to tackle the problem of non-static paths/names/ids of DOM elements while automating with Selenium?
I don't know the Selenium GUI, but if it allows you to specify a CSS selector, that's where the expression goes. If div isn't right, use the appropriate element type instead. Or you can use * there to match any element. So: *[id^='ctl43_manager_TabControl'][id$='parameter1']. You don't have to select the version of CSS. Just choose 'css_selector'. If your browser implements CSS3, you can use the "begins with" and "ends with" operators. I think all modern browsers implement CSS3 these days.

comment What are the disadvantages of test driven development?
It's a smaller loop than that. You write one test. You write the code to pass that test. You refactor to make the code easy to understand and change. Then you write one more test, then the code to pass both tests, then refactor. One test at a time. You never write a set of predefined tests. en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Test-driven_development

"The predefined tests" is not how TDD works.
