AFAIK this is not possible with GEF (IMHO GEF does not support rotation

Unfortunately it is not that simple. When a figure (and a layer is only
a figure in that sense) is rotated, all coordinates are to be calculated
differently. E.g. mouse selection has to be aware of the rotation,
connection anchors, and even redrawing has to be adjusted.
Fortunately it has all been implemented already in GEF3D. GEF3D fully
supports rotation (around all three axis). If you do not need full 3D,
you could simply restrict the "camera" in order to achieve a 2D look and
feel. Rotating a layer will then be very simple: You will have to create
a 3D figure and rotate it around the z-axis. Note that you can mix 2D
and 3D figures. However, there are some restriction of GEF3D at the
moment, e.g., scrollpanes and direct editing are not supported.
