as you already know, the OrthogonalRouter does not avoid obstacles. It does only insert way points so that all segments between way points are either horizontal or vertical.
GEF 5.0.0 does not provide such functionality out-of-the-box, however, GEF Legacy Draw2D provides ShortestPathRouter, which does exactly that: http://help.eclipse.org/kepler/index.jsp?topic=%2Forg.eclipse.draw2d.doc.isv%2Freference%2Fapi%2Forg%2Feclipse%2Fdraw2d%2Fgraph%2FShortestPathRouter.html
As an alternative, you could let a layout algorithm compute the way points so that obstacles are avoided, e.g. using Graphviz or ELK (Eclipse Layout Kernel), which might be a good idea, anyway.
