I didn't see anything wrong with that line of code...unless I've missed
something else.

I did copy your snippet into a 'program' and it ran just fine...except I
did have to add a line:  
     RealType radiance = new RealType("radiance");

Here's the complete "program":

import visad.*;
public class test {
  public static void main(String [] a) {
  try {

   RealType line = new RealType("line");
   RealType element = new RealType("element");
   RealType radiance = new RealType("radiance");
   RealType time = new RealType("time");

   RealTupleType domain_tuple = new RealTupleType(line, element);
   FunctionType baseType = new FunctionType(domain_tuple, radiance);
   FunctionType fType = new FunctionType(time, baseType);


  } catch (Exception e) {}

When I run this, the output I get is:
[presto]$java test
fType=(time -> ((line, element) -> radiance))

Not sure what I'm missing...I do know that when doing animations you
will probably want to create an AnimationControl, since I believe the
default state now for animations is "not animating" -- see, for example.
